Mustard Fried Catfish Recipe

“I make this meal on a monthly basis,” writes Barbara Keith from Faucett, MIssouri. “The fish is so delicious and flaky, and it’s easy to prepare, too.” If you can’t find catfish, purchase orange roughy or cod instead.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 4 catfish fillets (6 ounces each)
  • Oil for frying

Directions

  • 1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Spread mustard over both sides of fillets; coat with cornmeal mixture.
  • 2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry fillets, a few at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels. Yield: 4 servings.

"I mixed the mustard and spices and let the fish marinate in it for a couple of hours. It was so flavorful! The flour cornmeal mix gave it a nice crispy coating!"

"I made some adjustments to the recipe, I used salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It was much more flavorful."

"This was okay. Not overly flavorful. I'm not used to frying fish, and now I see how it does eliminate the overly powerful "fishy" taste that usually results from baking it. I ate it with hot sauce and that of course gave it some flavor."
