Yield: 4 servings



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking pan with non-stick pan spray. In a pie pan or shallow dish, mix the bread crumbs, cheese, basil or oregano, S&P. Set aside. In another pie pan or dish, combine the egg and buttermilk. Dip each fish fillet first in the milk mixture, then in the crumb mixture to coat both sides with crumbs. Arrange the fillets in 1 layer in the baking pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

  • Catfish fillets (3 or 4 medium pieces per person)
  • 1 cup Corn Meal
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 3 /4 cup buttermilk
  • Enough cooking oil to cover the fish (I use peanut or corn oil)


Skin the catfish fillets, rinse, and pat dry.

Combine all dry ingredients on a plate, and mix well. Beat eggs and buttermilk in a medium size bowl.

Dip fillets in the egg wash, shake of excess then roll in the cornmeal mix to coat thoroughly on all sides.

Make sure oil is hot, then place fish in frying pan and fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

Cut the fish into 1 inch chunks. Place flour, eggs, and crumbs into 3 separate bowls. Coat the fish with the flour, then dip into the eggs, then coat with the crumbs...
