- Salt and pepper to taste

- 1 cup buttermilk

1. In a shallow bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

2. Dip the catfish fillets in buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off.

3. Coat the catfish with the cornmeal mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

4. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat to 350°F (175°C).

5. Carefully place the coated catfish fillets in the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.

6. Transfer the catfish to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

7. Serve hot with your favorite sides, such as coleslaw, hushpuppies, and tartar sauce.
