Redneck catfish and hush puppies

Submitted by Art Kettelhut

What you'll need:

Catch and clean (or get them store bought ones) Catfish, You'll want about 2 pounds of Fillets for this recipe.

Then go to the store, or fridge and back yard and gather up:

1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs beaten
1 12oz beer
1/4 cup minced onion
3 cups oil (your choice) salt and pepper to taste

Mix, in a medium bowl, the flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl beat the egg, add the beer and onions . Cut the fillets into squares. Heat the oil. Roll the fish in the flour mix, then into the beer mix then back into the flour mix. Next put into the hot oil and cook until brown -

I like mine cooked a little longer so they're really crispy.

1 cup all purpose cornmeal
1 1/2 Tbs all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
3 Tbs chopped onion
3 Tbs chopped green or red bell pepper
3 Tbs chopped tomato
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix all the dry ingredients together and then add onions, pepper, and tomato. Mix in the egg and milk and stir gently to blend. Drop by spoonfuls into deep hot fat. Cook until brown. (You do realize you should be already cooking fish, don't you?) Hush puppies will float when done.
