Bayou Catfish Balls
2 lb Catfish fillets 1 ts Hot sauce ( or to taste ) Salt (to taste) Pepper (to taste) 3 Eggs (beaten) 1 1/2 cups Cornmeal Cooking oil
Rub fish with hot sauce, salt and pepper. Set aside for 1 hour or more. Cut fish into bite-size pieces and dip into eggs. Roll in cornmeal. Fry quickly in deep fat for 2 or 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain.
Note # 1: Serve hot
Note # 2 : I buy catfish nuggets from work. That way I can skip the part of cutting the fish into bite size pieces.
