Expert Tips

From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Purr-fect for catfish or any mild-flavored fish, this dish goes from pan to kitchen table in 20 minutes flat—with a spicy cornmeal breading that’s sure to heat up dinner hour!

Mild-flavored fish varieties include cod, perch and catfish.

You can use a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet to cook the fish.

Directions

  • 1 In shallow dish, beat egg and hot pepper sauce until well mixed. In another shallow dish, stir cornmeal, paprika, pepper, salt, onion powder and seafood seasoning until blended.
  • 2 Dip each piece of fish into egg mixture, then coat with cornmeal mixture.
  • 3 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add fish; cook 4 to 8 minutes, turning once, until fish flakes easily with fork and is brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. (To keep underside of fish crisp, immediately place fish on cooling rack until serving time.) Squeeze lemon juice over fish.
