Cajun Fried Catfish
Sent in by April Barkulis.

~ 1lb catfish fillets, cut into serving size pieces
~ 1 egg
~ 1/2 can of beer
~ 2 tbsp mustard
~ 1 cup milk, divided
~ Tabasco sauce
~ 2 cups cornmeal
~ cayenne pepper
~ salt & pepper

In a shallow dish, place the catfish. Pour 1/2 cup milk over the fillets and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes.

In a bowl, beat the egg until smooth. Add the beer, mustard, 1/2 cup of milk and Tabasco sauce to taste. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix the corn meal, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper to your taste (remember, the hotter the better).

Remove the fillets from the milk and dip in the egg/beer mixture. Immediately toss with the dry mix and fry in hot grease until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels.

Serve with your favorite side dishes.
