Pan-Fried Catfish with Pepper and Lemon

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Fish

 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Lemon peel - grated
  • 2/3 c Buttermilk
  • 2 tb Butter
  • 1 tb Parsley, minced
  • 1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 4 Catfish fillets
  • 1 tb Vegetble oil
  • Lemon wedges


Combine cornmeal, flour, lemon peel and cayenne in shallow dish.
Season with salt. Pour buttermilk into second shallow dish. Dip 1
fish fillet into buttermilk, then into cornmeal mixture, coating
completely. Repeat process with remaining fish. (Note from me: Let
fish stand for approximately 15 minutes before proceeding.) Melt
butter with oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add
fish and cook until crust is golden brown and fish is cooked through,
turning once, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer fish to platter.
Sprinkle with minced parsley. Garnish with lemon wedges.

NOTE: If you let the fish sit coated for the 15 minutes that I
recommend, this dish will take 45 minutes. Believe me, let the fish
sit for the 15 minutes; it will keep the coating on the fish with no
hassle whatsoever.
