TW Fried Catfish

Recipe by  

"One of my favorite fried-catfish recipes when having a fish fry. This is not too spicy and is usually a crowd favorite. Adapted from one of one of my old working buddies in the late 70s. Serve with french fries or onion rings."

Directions

  1. Season catfish with Cajun seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Refrigerate fillets 1 to 3 hours.
  2. Mix saltine crackers and almonds in a large, wide bowl. Stir milk, beaten eggs, and garlic together in a separate bowl.
  3. Soak the catfish fillets in the milk mixture for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Heat peanut oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Gently press the catfish fillets into the cracker mixture to coat completely; shake to remove any loose breading.
  6. Fry fillets in hot peanut oil until cooked through and floats atop the oil, about 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note:
  • The actual amount of the breading consumed will vary. We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
