I get asked often about the difference in the coating used on seafood in the south compared to other places. I had One person tell me they had tried flour mixed with cornmeal and even breadcrumbs but it was never quite the same as when they went to the
coast along the Texas Louisiana border.
While I cannot speak for all, I can tell you that my Step-Mother, as well as my Mother used Cracker meal. It is often times hard to find in the Stores in other parts of the country, but is quite common in the South.
Cracker Meal seems to give a lighter less "there" coating that I think is unique to the southern way of frying seafood. Try it and see what you think. Just season it with what ever you like "Cayenne" anyone? :)
