Southern Fried Catfish

Southern Fried Catfish is great Soul Food and great for the soul!  The ultimate comfort food!


1 Pound Fresh Catfish Fillets

¼ Cup Unbleached Flour

1 Beaten Egg

3 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard

1 Tablespoon Milk

¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1 Cup Coarsely Crushed Pretzels

2 Tablespoons Cooking Oil

1 Lemon Sliced Thin

Please use fresh catfish for this dish!  Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels.  Cut into four serving sized pieces in need be.  Place the flour in a shallow dish.  In a second shallow dish combine the egg, mustard, milk and pepper.  Beat with a whisk until smooth.  In a third shallow dish (yeah, I know, lots of dishes) place the coarsely crushed pretzels.  Coat both sides of the fillets with flour.  Dip the fillets in the mustard mixture and coat with crushed pretzels.  In a large skillet cook the fish in the hot oil over a medium heat for 4 minutes per side until golden brown and the fish begins to flake when tested with a fork.  Reduce the heat if necessary to prevent burning.  Serve with lemon slices. Serves 4
