"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
8 (5 to 6-ounce) catfish fillets, skin removed Salt Old Bayİseasoning 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup white fine cornmeal Oil, for frying
Heat a fryer or a deep pot halfway filled with oil to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle both sides of each catfish with salt and Old Bayİseasoning. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and the cornmeal. Dredge the catfish in the flour mixture and place in fryer. Deep fry for approximately 7 to 8 minutes until done. Drain on paper towels.
This recipe works well for trout, spot or flounder. The Fail-Safe Coleslaw and Melt-In-Your-Mouth Hushpuppies make for a great meal.
