Fried Catfish with Cheese Grits
One of the foundations of southern comfort food is the classic recipe for Fried Catfish and Cheese Grits.
– Catfish fillets – Milk – White cornmeal – Salt – Peanut oil
You’ll find these tender, crispy, and golden brown fried fish fillets at the center of any southern fish fry.
Rinse catfish fillets under cold water and place in a shallow baking dish or pan. Add milk to cover fillets.
Remove the fillets from the refrigerator about 10 minutes before ready to cook.
Place a large cast iron frying pan over high heat and pour in peanut oil to a depth of approximately 1 inch.
Combine the cornmeal and salt in a shallow pan. Remove fillets from milk letting most of the excess drip off.
Place one fillet at a time into the cornmeal and turn it several times to coat well.
