Southern Style Fried Catfish is the best kept culinary secret out there. This incredibly easy, delicious and perfectly crispy dish will have you wondering why you haven’t been making this at home more often!
Here at Sizzlefish, our catfish fillets are naturally raised in North Carolina. This native US species has been farmed in the south for generations now. Southerners know it as a grain fed delicacy that’s so mild many people who say they don’t like seafood, love catfish. Our catfish fillets are a healthy, low-calorie, high protein fish that also contains some heart healthy Omega-3s.
Let’s talk about this Southern Style Fried Catfish recipe now, shall we? Um, that cornmeal crust with a slight kick from the seasonings and Tabasco sauce are pure Southern perfection. Think about it, perfectly flaky catfish enveloped in a golden deliciously crispy coating…we know, your mouth is salivating, ours is too! Well, it can be yours in no time. Seriously, you will wonder why you were scared to take the plunge to make this once you try it. We didn’t go with the deep frying method since that can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. Instead we decided to fry these fillets in a cast iron skillet on the stove top which makes less mess for you to clean up. Finish these finger licking fillets with a spritz of fresh lemon juice and please promise us you will serve them with stone ground grits. We promise it will be a Southern dream come true!
