I had a request from a member for a simple and easy recipe for fried fish. If you like crisp, crunchy fish, then this recipe is for you. I use this for sole, catfish or talapia. This is the recipe that I use all the time. My family loves it, and I have tried other batter recipes, but I keep coming back to this tried and true old favorite. I hope you enjoy it!



This humble recipe is my own and so is the photo.

How to Make BONNIES FRIED FISH (sole, catfish or talapia)

Step-by-Step

  1. I use an electric skillet, but you can use a non-stick skillet. Pour in about 1/4 inch corn oil in the skillet over medium heat, or if using an electric skillet set it at 350 degrees, add a few drops of water and wait for it to sizzle and pop. When it starts to popping, it is hot enough to add the breaded fish.
  2. Combine the 1 cup of cornmeal and the 1 tablespoon of black pepper in a shallow pie plate. Dredge the prepared filets in the mixture on both sides of the fish and carefully put into the hot corn oil.
  3. Fry until nice and golden brown on both sides. Remove to a platter, sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
  4. Cook's tip: I like to buy frozen filets for convenience, but fresh catfish, sole or talapia filets will work, too. I serve this with my Best Oven Baked Fries and Potato Wedges, and my Simple Romaine and Lettuce Salad, also on this site. Enjoy!

Open the pantry and you’ll probably find a can of condensed milk on the shelf. It’s a baking staple, but what exactly is it? Sweetened condensed milk is made by heating milk and removing its water. Once reduced, it’s sweetened with sugar (lots of it). The final product is very thick, sweet, and fantastic in […]
