Spicy Fried Catfish


Prep Time 10 min

Cook Time 8 min

Total Time 18 min


2 lbs Catfish Nuggets

1 cup self-rising flour

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 cup hot sauce

2 medium-sized eggs

2 tsp of your favorite cajun seasoning

2- 2 1/2 cups oil to fry with


Make sure that the fish is nice and clean before anything else, then set it to the side.

In a large bowl add the self-rising flour, cornmeal, and cajun seasoning. Mix well.

In a separate bowl beat the two eggs, then add in the hot sauce, and mix.

Next, add the fish to the bowl with the hot sauce & egg mixture.

Make sure that the fish is nicely coated with the wet mixture, then coat it with the flour mixture.

Once all of the fish is coated, let it sit for about 5 minutes so that the cornmeal & flour mixture can stick well.

Heat the oil between 350 – 375 F.

Once the oil is nice and hot, carefully add the fish into the skillet or deep fryer, but do not overcrowd.

Fry the fish until golden brown, then remove from the oil, and set on a paper towel-lined plate or cookie sheet.
