(Pics)Holy crap ill never fry catfish without hotsauce again GAMECHANGER····


Any input is appreciated.
I have a big propane fryer, and I know to put peanut oil in it.

Coating? Sticking on method? Degrees and times? Nuggets or fillets? Dipping sauce?

Am making potato salad to go with it.

Feeding about 10.

thin fillets
seasoned corn flour, not cornmeal

Salt, pepper and garlic powder on fish. Coat fish with mustard. Put in corn flour and fry at 360 till they float. About 2-3 minutes.

Mustard and beer for the marinade before breading. Something like 1 cup yellow mustard to 2 cans of beer. Let fish sit in marinade a few minutes. Shake off excess and coat with preferred breading. I prefer a seasoned corn meal and corn flour mixture.
Fish taste better and cooks quicker when cut into 3-4 inch strips too.

If it's thick cut it into nuggets, if thin do whole filets.

Mustard.
Louisiana fish fry, I usually add some more seasoning.
If it's thick enough, go nuggets.
Canes type sauce for dipping, if needed.
Usually the mustard is enough.

This with salt, pepper, maybe some cayenne.

I don't use mustard on catfish, usually. I have on other fish. No cornflour in that cornmeal. I go for the crunch.

Mustard takes away from the crunch? I love the crunch.

Mustard doesn't if they are coated well. I don't think flour or cornflour mixtures are as crunchy crispy as cornmeal. One sort of exception is "cream meal" which is a fine cornmeal, I believe. It's what Uglesich's used on their fried seafoods. The only place I've found it is through Louisiana Fish Fry, but they sell it in 25 lb bags or they did.

my biggest mistake frying any fish is not getting the oil hot enough, and cooking pieces that are too big

Mustard may be ok, but too much ruins the flavor of the fish. To me, mustard is a sure bet to ruin and overpower the flavor of the fish and seasoning.

Even if it's a mustard/beer coating? I always thought mustard was used because it didn't add to much to the flavor once cooked.

The only time I have mustard on fish is usually with whole bream when someone else fixes it. Too much can definitely ruin the fish.

The only way to fry!! If you can't get it. Cornmeal. Flour is for Yankees.

I buy it in 50# bags.
