    These catfish fillets are coated in polenta and deep fried until crunchy. Delicious and easy to make!

    Serves: 2 

    • 1/2 cup (125ml) buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) water
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 500g catfish fillets, cut in strips
    • 1 1/2 cups fine polenta
    • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
    • 1 litre vegetable oil for deep frying

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a small bowl, mix buttermilk, water, salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a flat pan large enough to hold the fillets. Spread fish in one layer over bottom of pan, turning to coat each side, and set aside to marinate.
    2. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the polenta and flour. Add fish to mixture, a few fillets at a time, and tumble gently to coat evenly.
    3. Heat oil in deep fryer to 190 degrees C.
    4. Deep fry fillets until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Avoid overcrowding so fillets have room to brown properly. Fish should be slightly crisp outside, and moist and flaky inside. Drain on paper towels.
