Beer Battered Catfish

Beer Battered Catfish
Recipe type: Seafood
Serves: 1
  • 3 pounds catfish, "fresh"
  • 1/4 Cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 Cup flour
  • 2 eggs; beaten
  • 1 Twelve-pack of beer; (your favored brand)
  • 1/4 Cup minced onion
  • 3 Cups vegetable oil
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  1. In a medium mixing bowl blend flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper together.
  2. In a separate medium mixing bowl beat egg well, add one 12 ounce can of beer and minced onions, mix well.
  3. Cut the catfish into 2-inch cubes or strips. Heat up the shortening or vegetable oil.
  4. Roll the catfish pieces into the flour mixture, then dip into the beer-egg mixture, then back into the flour mixture.
  5. Place floured and dipped catfish pieces into the deep-fry, cook until golden-brown.
  6. Since you have 11 more cans of beer left "now" will be a good time to get started on the rest of the 12 pack.
  7. Serve up the catfish with tarter sauce, catsup, cocktail sauce or just like it is.
  8. Make sure you add a little tossed green salad, french fries, or some hush puppies for a delicious meal.
Absolutely the best catfish you can eat.
