What you’ll need:

  • 4 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets, cut into strips
  • ½ cup dill pickle juice
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 cups oil
  • Pickle slices and honey mustard (for serving)

How to prepare:

Pour pickle juice over catfish strips, and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove, and set aside for 15 minutes to allow catfish to come up to room temperature.

Beat eggs with milk in a bowl. Combine flour, sugar and spices in another bowl.

Pat catfish dry, and dip pieces into egg mixture, coating both sides; then coat in flour.

Heat oil to 375° F in a skillet. Fry strips for about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Serve with pickle slices and honey mustard.
