Fish Recipes: Catfish: Catfish Nuggets
  • 2 lbs catfish fillets, cut into 1-inch nuggets
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying

1. Mix cornmeal, salt and oregano in a shallow dish or on a piece of wax paper. Mix milk and egg in another shallow dish. Dip catfish nuggets into the milk mixture, then dredge in the cornmeal mixture, tossing to coat.

2. Fill a large skillet half full with vegetable oil and heat to 350°F on a deep-frying thermometer. Add nuggets to the hot oil and fry, working in batches, until golden brown, turning to cook evenly on all sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with favorite sauce for dipping.
