In 1950, and after watching grandpa Curl skin the big ole catfish he just caught in an Indiane creek,...by nailing it to a tree and pulling off the skin with his trusty ole plyers...YUCK!
I wasn't sure I wanted to eat it at supper time.
But after grandma starting frying it up...HA!
AFTER A FEW BITES, I WAS HOOKED!!
AND REMAIN SO TO THIS DAY..

How to Make MY FRIED CATFISH w/ HOMEMADE NUGGETS

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut your catfish filet into bite size nuggets.
    ** TIP:I never buy the catfish nuggets packaged and sold in the store...!! NUGGETTS ????? I cut up my own...Then I know it is the best part of the fish!
    Wash and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Put flour in one bowl.
    Beaten egg , with a little milk
    (very little)in another bowl.
    Bread crumbs,homemade cracker crumbs,or Panko in the third bowl.
  3. Dip the nuggets into the flour,then the egg wash, next the crumbs.Put on a plate.
    When the are all breaded ...put in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Heat the oil to a 350-370 temperature.
    Fry your nuggets 3 or 4 at a time...do not over crowd them.
    Drain on a rack over paper towels.
    Serve warm with dip of your choice.
    I use mayonnaise mixed with catsup.
    Salt and pepper.....
    and a salad on the side.
    Now enjoy to your heart content!!
