A very common fish in North America with the Channel Catfish and the Blue Catfish being the most common to make it to your table. Catfish are caught in the wild but are also commonly farmed.

This is really a fast and easy recipe that should only take you about 15 minutes in total and about 5 mins in the pan!

Ingredients:
1-½ lbs of Catfish fillets

¼ cup corn meal
2 tablespoons canola oil (I sometimes use coconut oil but cooking times vary with this)

How to Prepare Pan-Fried Catfish

Preheat a large sauté’ or fry pan on medium, season the fillets with salt and pepper (I sometimes just use Adobo seasoning)

Dip the fish in the egg batter and coat completely with the cornmeal

Cook each fillet for 3-5 minutes on each side
Make sure the crust is a golden brown and the catfish flesh is flaky.
Drain the oil by placing the fillets on a paper towel
