I fix this at least twice a month, when I can find it. I know Krogers didn't have it for over a month. It is my favorite to fix for my man.
In colander, place fish and season with the spices, let rest 30 minutes
in a bowl to dredge, mix egg and milk
in another bowl to dredge, mix flour, and corn meal mix
heat oil in fryer skillet or dutch oven, at least 3/4 " deep
dip fish pieces in egg mixture, then in the flour mixture, shake off excess, lay each pirce carefully in hot oil ( burner on med heat )
continue until all fish is in skillet. cook 10 minutes, turn each piece and fry another 10 minutes.
when fish is dark as you want, remove from oil to paper towel lined plate.
