Fried Catfish

4 lb Catfish fillets
1 c Milk for soaking
1/2 c Flour
1 1/2 c Cornmeal
Salt & pepper to taste
2 ts Crab & shrimp seasoning (commercial or see recipe)
Oil for deep- or pan-frying


Cut the fillets into serving pieces of about 4 ounces each. Soak all the fish in the milk for 1 hour. Mix the flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper, and the crab and shrimp seasoning together. Drain the fish and dredge in the cornmeal mixture.

Deep-fry in 375 oil, a few pieces at a time, until golden brown. Keep pieces warm in a 200 oven until all is complete, or pan-fry on both sides in a bit of oil or butter until the fish is lightly browned and done to your liking. Do not overcook catfish.
