Today, I am sharing a simple but yet a delicious and amazing Southern fired catfish recipe. When you think of a good fish recipe, think of Southern fried catfish!

The flour, cornmeal and breadcrumbs coating is just a perfect combo for the catfish, and it’s super easy to make. The warming spiciness of seasonings mixed with the coating is just a perfect match.
