Try this flaky catfish recipe for a new twist on fish sticks.

Instructions

  1. Place cornmeal in a shallow dish, and season with salt and pepper. Dredge catfish strips in cornmeal mixture, shaking off excess. Set aside on a wax-paper lined baking sheet.
  2. Pour 2 inches of peanut oil into a deep fryer or a large, heavy skillet, and heat to 375 degrees. Add catfish strips to hot oil, three at a time, and fry in a single layer for 5 minutes, turning to cook evenly, until golden brown and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  3. Prepare dipping sauce 1 minute before serving catfish fingers. Mix vinegar, salt, pepper, shallot, garlic, green onions and parsley in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
