Southern fried catfish is a classic Fat Tuesday dish. Whole catfish filets are dredged in cornmeal and then deep fried until golden brown. A trick to tame the strong fish flavor is to soak the filets in buttermilk for 30 minutes before frying them. You can serve your cornmeal crusted catfish with coleslaw, fries, and lemon wedges.
