Catfish Beer Battered In reply to
3 lb Catfish, "fresh"
1/4 cup Cornmeal
1/4 cup Flour
2 x Eggs beaten
1 x Twelve-pack of beer (your favored brand)
1/4 cup Minced onion
3 cup Vegetable oil
Salt to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper to taste
Method :
In a medium mixing bowl blend flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper together. In a separate medium mixing bowl beat egg well, add one 12 ounce can of beer and minced onions, mix well.
Cut the catfish into 2-inch cubes or strips. Heat up the shortening or vegetable oil. Roll the cat into the flour mixture, then dip into the beer-egg mixture, then back into the flour mixture. Place floured and dipped cat into the deep-fry, cook until golden-brown. 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.
Serve up the cat with tarter sauce, catsup, or just like it is. Make sure you add a little tossed green salad, french fries, or some hush puppies for a delicious meal.
Comments: Absolutely the best catfish you can eat.
