* I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and as a kid my Dad and I always went fishing. To this day I remember my first fishing pole, my trusty pole was a state of the art Snoopy rod! From the time I was 4 years old till I was 17years old, I caught just about every fish out there. I’ve been ocean fishing, lake fishing, and fly-fishing. However in all of my years, up until that fateful day many moons ago, I had never caught a Catfish! When I did reel in the Catfish I was prepared to find the perfect recipe to savor my victory.
¼ tsp cayenne powder
½ tsp baking powder
2/3-cup crackers, crushed
½ tsp salt
3 dashes of pepper
5 dashes Mrs. Dash lemon
5 dashes Lawry’s Seasoning
5 dashes accent
3 dashes Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 ½ cups BEER…(Yep, you need BEER)
Mix all ingredients together. Stir until slightly lumpy. Dip fish in batter. I recommended Pan- fry on medium heat. Cook until golden brown on each side.
* Suggestion: Go to your local butcher and have him hand select your catfish. This also works great with Cod!
