6 Eggs 4 teaspoons of your favorite hot sauces 1/2 cup water 2 pounds of catfish fillets 1 cup flour2 teaspoons of salt 2 teaspoons of paprika 1 cup medium cornmeal or sometimes I use bisquick 1-1/2 teaspoons of black pepper add cayenne pepper to your taste cottonseed oil for frying catfish Mix eggs, hot sauce and waterfor the egg wash. In a dish, place the fillets in the egg wash and refrigerate for 1 to several hours. Combine the cornmeal, flour, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne in another dish. Pour enough cottonseed oil into a cast iron skillet to half way up your fillets. First heat your oil to 300-325 degrees. Start dredging your fillets in the dry mixture 1 at a time, be sure to coat both sides thouroughly. place your fillets in the skillet. Fry your fillets about 5 minutes per 1/2 inch of thickness, turning them 1 time only. adjust your heat as necessary for deep golden brown crust, check for flakyness of your fish. Serve with Lemon pieces and tartar sauce. If you like spicy food, this is really great. :0a13: Hope you like it as much as we do.
