I love and grew up eating catfish every Friday. Simple easy recipe!!!
Wash fish very well, dry and prep to season
Mix all seasonings together except lemon pepper. Heavily and evenly sprinkle seasonging over fish steak too and bottom
Warm vegetable oil to about 355°. If you do not have a thermometer sprinkle a little cornmeal in the oil to do a test. Should not be popping but lightly bubble.
Place on packet of sazon into cornmeal and flour mixture for seasoning.
Place a couple steak into the breading and into the grease. Should not be popping but bubbly.
Cool for about 12-16 min flipping two or three times so breading stays golden brown and doesn't brown.
Allow drained grease on a paper towel and enjoy!
Don't forget the hot sauce and be careful catfish has lots of small bones.
