Tasty Catfish Recipes The Whole Family Will Love

Fried Catfish

Fried catfish is a simple method that basically requires you to put a little butter or oil into the pan and heat on medium. Once the pan reaches it full temperature place the catfish fillets in single file and cook for about five minutes on each side, turning once.

This part is simple but again there are many recipes for ways to prepare the catfish filets for frying that will give it a completely different taste. Cajun fried catfish is one of the most popular recipes. Start by mixing two cups of cornmeal and three tablespoons of Cajun seasoning together. In a separate bowl mix two eggs, one cup milk and about � cup of mustard together.

Place oil in a fry pan and heat to about 375 degrees. When it reaches full temperature take a catfish filet and place it into the egg mixture until it is completely coated, then cover it completely with the cornmeal mixture. Place in pan and fry as usual.

The great thing about these recipes is that you have the option of experimenting and adding or taking away an ingredient until you find the perfect taste for your family. When cooking catfish you do need to make sure that you don’t overcook. If you do overcook it, the filets will begin to flake apart and it will taste very dry. This will certainly reduce the flavor and you won’t be able to enjoy the great taste this species of fish has to offer. When fully cooked the catfish filets will turn from a translucent color to a white color.

If you enjoy fishing, then you get to enjoy two great things from catching catfish. First, you have the fun and excitement of reeling in this amazing fish that will definitely put up a fight that you will be talking about for a long time to come. Then you have the pleasure of eating one of the best tasting foods available. What more could you ask for?
