makes 6 servings

The Basic Fundamentals

Whisk together the southern kissed tempura-style batter as the oil heats for the crispiest results.

Vegetable oil
1 cup soft wheat self-rising flour
1/2 cup plain yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 tsp Creole or Cajun seasoning
1 cup beer
1 egg
2 lbs catfish, cut into 1/2-inch strips
Dill Pickle Remoulade

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2-inches in a Dutch oven & heat to 360 degrees. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, the cornmeal, the cornstarch & the Cajun seasoning in a large bowl. Combine the beer & the egg in a small bowl. Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture until well blended. Dip the catfish, a few pieces at a time, into the batter, tapping off any excess. Fry, in batches, 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon & place on a paper towel-lined wire rack over a sheet pan. Allow the oil to return to 360 degrees between batches. Keep warm in a 200 degree oven. Serve with the Dill Pickle Remoulade.

The Extra Point

Try this irresistible batter with shrimp for equally tasty results.

makes about 1 1/2 cups

Game Changer

The classic combination of fish & chips wouldn’t be the same without serving a tangy malt vinegar on the side. Using a little bit of the dill pickle brine in the remoulade offers a surprising new twist to that very notion.

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup coarsely chopped Classic Dill Pickle Chips
2 Tbsp Creole or Hot Moonshine Mustard
3 Tbsp dill pickle juice
1 scallion, minced
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, pressed
Garnish: Fresh dill

Stir together all of the ingredients in a medium bowl.

The Extra Point

Serve over shrimp or crawfish po’ boy sandwiches for a delicious change of pace.

rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickThe Technique

Gather essential equipment items such as a portable fish fryer or turkey fryer with all of it’s parts, peanut, vegetable or canola oil, two pair of long handled tongs, a spider for retrieving fried items from the hot grease, paper towels, brown grocery sacks & several pot holders. Cut the catfish into strips & place in a zip-top plastic bag. Crack the egg into a medium plastic bowl with a lid & place in a cooler. Stir together the flour, the cornmeal, the cornstarch & the Cajun seasoning in a large plastic bowl with a lid. Whisk the beer into the egg just before you are ready to fry the fish, then blend into the flour mixture. Set up the fryer according to manufacturers instructions. For safe measure, on concrete. Dip the fish in the batter using tongs & drop into hot grease, following the recipe instructions as directed. Remove the pieces with the spider. Drain on paper towel topped grocery sacks.
