  1. Mix cornmeal, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper on a plate.
  2. Beat milk and eggs together in a bowl. Dip catfish fillets in milk mixture, then gently press fillets into cornmeal mixture, coating both sides. Shake off excess breading.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet; pan-fry catfish in hot oil until the fish is golden brown and flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes per side.

used tilapia - just can't say anything good

My family is catfish K RAZY!! THIS just adds to their love for this muddy buddy! The only thing this dish needs is salt n pepper. Perfect otherwise.

I made this exactly like the recipe, and will make it again! Crunchy, a little "bite," and quick to the table!

Made this and it was so quick and easy. I would enhance the seasoning next time since we like spicy food, but this was a keeper.

Very good! This one is a keeper.
