"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."

  • Ready In

  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.
