Mustard Up Catfish

This recipe of catfish coated with mustard was inspired by one of my brothers-in-law.  I tried it a couple of times and really loved it.  His preparation was different from the method in which I prepare fish, but the end result was outstanding.
On one occasion, I fried some of the fish and seared a couple of pieces. The pieces that were seared were very good as well.

  • 3 large catfish fillets cut in half
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon pepper to taste
  • smoked paprika
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • oil for frying
  1. Place fish in a non-metallic dish, add buttermilk to marinate fish
  2. Remove fish from buttermilk after 30 minutes and pat dry with a paper towel 
  3. Coat fish on both sides with mustard
  4. season fish on both sides
  5. Place cornmeal and flour in a large plastic food bag
  6. Add fish, shake to coat
  7. Add oil to skillet, heat over medium to high heat
  8. Add fish, fry on each side until brown
  9. Remove from oil, plate and serve with other sides
Twist: Yellow mustard
