One of the greatest joys of living in Louisiana is having access to fresh seafood. One organism, the catfish. We love some fried catfish! I like to keep the steps simple and let the homemade spiced batter mix do it all!
I like to fry everything. I’m not getting a little fluffy to get this cute fillet. But my family loves it so thin and crunchy! Therefore, I slice a few wisdom-length pieces and fry them a little longer.
Fish and Chips is basically the best order of any restaurant and I go if it sounds good on Yelp (haha – always pics yelp! Check your restaurants all!), And this recipe is a great pub choice along with other pub favorites like Buffalo Wings, Super Crispy Chicken tender and classic beef chili.

Work in batches, fry the fish in hot oil for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown, crunchy, and fully cooked. Remove it and place it on a cooling rack to allow for drainage or on a plate lined with newspaper or paper towel.
