Quick Pan-Fried Catfish

Fish generally cooks 10 minutes per inch of thickness. If the catfish you buy is thicker, it will take longer to cook. Just lower the temperature slightly.

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Cook time: 10 Minutes
  • Prep time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose baking mix
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 4 (4- to 6-ounce) catfish fillets
  • 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges

Preparation

Combine first 3 ingredients in a shallow bowl.

Pat catfish fillets dry with paper towels; brush both sides of each fillet evenly with Ranch dressing. Dredge in cornmeal mixture; lightly press cornmeal mixture onto fillets.

Cook catfish in hot vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until fish just flakes with a fork. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Bisquick for all-purpose baking mix.
