Crispy Fried Catfish Nuggets

12 ingredients

Frying anything is a chore, this technique will make it worth the trouble. This can be applied to any type of meat that is fit for frying. I only do this with catfish since it has the right flavor and consistency to hold up to the process and makes for decent left-overs. Tilapia is for people who pretend to like fish so don't let me catch you using that instead! This is best served on an onion roll with Durkee Sauce, Green Tomato Relish and thin sliced red onion.
