Why I Love This Recipe

When I was about 4 or 5 year old, my late Mamaw fixed this recipe as a main dish to her "Southern Style Hush Puppies" recipe, which I have posted on here.

Since I am from Mississippi, my family and I eat this a lot.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 Tbsp salt

3 tsp black pepper

2 tsp ground red pepper

1 cup buttermilk

1 large egg, beaten

2 1/2 cups self rising cornmeal

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp dried thyme

catfish filets

peanut oil for frying


Directions

1 Combine first 4 ingredients in a shallow pan.


2 Stir together buttermilk and egg in a bowl.


3 Combine the cornmeal, garlic powder and thyme in a large Ziploc bag.


4 Dredge catfish in flour mixture.


5 The dip in buttermilk mixture.


6 Next shake catfish in sealed Ziploc bag.


7 Fry in a deep fryer or heavy duty cast iron skillet in hot peanut oil.


8 Serve with hush puppies.
