Default Fish Fry Recipe?

I'm thinking of mixing a little tony's with cornmeal and frying in corn oil. Pretty simple.

Are there better fried fish recipes out there that you like? This is for catfish, and we have a cajun theme going.

We use the Louisiana fish fry in a bag, or zatarains. Both good stuff

Best way so far for me!!!
Take fillets or nuggets and soak in green tobasco sauce. Sprinkle with garlic powder while soaking for few hrs. Pat to semi dry, lightly batter in seasoned corn meal with cavenders Greek seasoning. Fry in 1/2 cotton seed oil and 1/2 peanut oil. We fry a bunch of onions un battered first to crispy. It's the best fish I've ever had and I grew up eating fish 2-3 times a week

We just use the zatarains where you soak in ice water, coat with the fry mix and let her rip

I have fried fish for years and tried everything. This to me is by far the best ever. The yellow bag is too fine almost flourish. This one has good cornmeal texture and the seasoning is almost perfect. I add a little bit of cajun seasoning to give it a little kick but be careful and not add too much because it will get salty. We do big fish frys and everyone says oh man I gotta have your fry mix recipe. Cant tell you that its my secret

I like two cups cornmeal half cup flour mixed with five tablespoons Creoles seasoning. Little cornstarch (learned that from the Brit royal rifle soldiers) and then just dash a little garlic and pepper, adjust to your liking. Hope you enjoy! It works great for crappie.

3/4 cup cornmeal

1/4 cup flour

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

This mix will coat about 4 - 5 medium catfish fillets.

1 cup flour 2 cups cornmeal, 2 tablespoons, cajun seasoning, black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper more if you like hot. Mix 1 egg and large bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce not Tabasco together. Soak fish in hot sauce 1 hour or more I usually sit it in the fridge overnight, then pull fish out of the sauce and shake in the cornmeal mixture fry in peanut oil. Makes a great fish fry.

This would be spicy but it is very very close to mine. I use 1 heaping Tbsp. per cup of cornmeal. It is the bomb for catfish.

Living in South La. I have tried just about every type of batter imaginable and I started doing this about 15-18 yr ago, I soak my fish in cold water, zip lock bag to a 102 qt ice chest I have fried as much as 100#, and plenty of Tony's seasoning. You can't hardly add too much. I let the fish soak anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days, the fish will only soak up so much seasoning. I've even froxe my fish with seasoned water and it still comes out the same when I thaw and fry it. I think the Tony's helps firm the fish a little, but the seasoning is in the fish, not so much in the batter.
I drain the fish that I'm about to put in the fryer in a colander or some type screen, leaving the rest to stay cold and wet. Then I batter with Zaterains seasoned fish fry, I get it from Sam's by the gallon jug and fry ay 375 degree for about 4 min
I have a commercial fryer, so I can set the temp on my oil, this makes for a crispy, thin batter and with the fish being cold, the middle doesn't dry out.
I've had a lot of people ask me for my recipe, but it's really simple.

try some panko for the breading....awesome stuff. We usually mix a little in with whatever seasoning we use ads a little more crunch. Thin and crispy is the way I like it!

Panko is excellent!

I like to let my fillers soak for about an hour or two in a mix of buttermilk, mustard, garlic powder and black pepper. Drain the fillers and coat in the zatarains lemon seasoned corn meal.

For the oil we use straight peanut oil. Fry up a bunch of fresh cut onions and jalapeņos then fry the fish. Absolutely excellent!


We also fillet our fillets and make them thin and crispy!

I fillet mine all to a uniform size then I put in a mixture of mustard and beer. After they soak a bit I use Louisiana fish fry the blue pack and add some ragin blaze to the mix. Makes for a real good fried fish.

I learned the mustard and beer help in taking the fishy flavoring out.

Clean fillets of all fin fat and red meat.
Pre coat with mustard, coat with half Louisiana
blue bag and half medium ground corn meal. I like the crunch from the coarser meal.
Fry in peanut oil at 375 to 400 degrees. Monitor with thermometer.
Use a spatula to scrap the bottom of your vessel periodically to make sure nothing sticks and burns.
Always start with filtered used oil from the refrigerator to season new oil with.
Drain in paper grocery sacks with papers towels to allow steam to escape so fillets won't get soggy.

Everyone that says mustard try the HEB brand spicy mustard. Thin with a little beer and then put in your favorite corn meal.
It is good

I cut the fillets into nuggets then put them in a ziplock bag with beer or water, mustard and hot sauce with a lot of seasoning, usually Tony's. (Steamboat Bills if I have it) then put back in the ice chest in the ice for at least 3 hours. I like the Zaterans seasoned fish fry the best, by far! Fry at 375 for 2.5 minutes. I use peanut oil or canola oil. I want to try frying in lard, I heard that's the best from a few people I trust.

I use to use the blue bag Louisiana fish fry, but prefer the red bag now. Cook in peanut oil at 375.
