does anyone know of a restaurant in the triangle area where you can get fried catfish dredged in corn meal only not a batter? It is so much crisper and tasty that way.

I want to say Danny's BBQ does that, but it's been a while since I've been there so I may be mistaken..

Definitely not Kemp's ... theirs is batter-fried. Maybe the seafood place at the farmer's market? Toot n' Tell in Garner? Pam's Farmhouse?

Luckily 32's in Cary has good catfish like that. (That's what I order when I go!)

What about Mama Dips?

I think the OP still wants it fried, just using corn meal and not a flour batter.

I've noticed that that catfish and hushpuppies that I had in TX tended to have more cornmeal in the batter than here. I prefer more cornmeal also, but it is a matter of taste. Try this recipe. . . .

Fried catfish
Ingredients:
1 pound of catfish fillets, cut into inch-wide strips
1 cup of yellow cornmeal
2 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for frying

Method:
Salt and pepper fillets and let warm to room temperature.
Heat up about three-inches of oil in an iron skillet or a Dutch oven.
Beat eggs and milk together in a bowl.
Put cornmeal on a plate.
Dip fillets in egg-milk mixture and then dredge in cornmeal, covering both sides.
Place battered fish into hot oil and cook four minutes, turning once.
Drain on a paper-towel lined plate.
Serves four.

Hush puppies
Ingredients:
3/4 cup of yellow corn meal
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of milk or buttermilk
1 egg
2 teaspoons of bacon drippings (optional)
1 jalapeno pepper, stems and seeds removed, finely diced
1/3 cup of diced onions
Oil for frying

Method:
Mix together all ingredients.
In batches, cook tablespoon-sized balls of dough in hot oil, until crisp and golden brown (about two minutes).
Makes about 20 hush puppies.

Cornmeal batter is what we used in rural western NC to fry up our own pond-raised catfish! We were thinking of taking some to fry up next camping trip.

NewUser, you got me hungry for some even though it's 8 in the morning Anyone know where to purchase some good catfish fillets around here?

Edit: I just noticed I used "fry up" twice.. this thread has my country coming out
