Ingredients

  • 2 pounds catfish fillets
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • Vegetable oil, for frying 
  • 2 cups cornmeal 
  • 2 cups corn flour

Directions

Cut catfish into thin fillets.

Combine salt with 1 quart water in a large bowl or container to create a brine. Soak catfish in the brine for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Bring some vegetable oil to 350 degrees F in a deep-fryer or Dutch oven.

Combine cornmeal and corn flour in a large bowl.

Take the catfish out of the brine, and coat each fillet with the dry mixture.

Deep-fry the fillets until golden brown, about 2 minutes.
