What you’ll need:

  • 2 U.S Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¾ cup cornmeal
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 slices of green tomatoes, ¼-inch thick (about 2 tomatoes)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

How to prepare:

Heat oil to 350° F in a large skillet.

Whisk egg and buttermilk in a small bowl. In another bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour and seasonings. Dip tomato slices in egg mixture; then dredge in cornmeal mixture, shaking off excess.

Fry tomato slices, in batches, in hot oil for 1 minute on each side; drain on paper towels. Remove any excess oil from pan.

Season catfish fillets with salt and pepper, and place in skillet. Cook for 3 minutes, flip and cook an additional 3 minutes. Remove from pan. Cut fillets in half. Place a fried tomato on the plate, and top with catfish. Repeat, ending with tomato on top. Serve with a side salad and your favorite dressing.
