Classic Fried Catfish

I do not claim to be providing entirely healthy recipes any longer.

Serving Size: 4

1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
4 Farm-raised catfish fillets
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons salt
Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper (or really any ground chili pepper of your choice)

Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Coat catfish with mixture, shaking off excess. Add 1" layer of oil to a large skillet. Heat to 350 degrees. Add catfish in single layer and fry until golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes depending on size.
Remove and drain on paper towels.
