Ingredients

Directions

  1. Prepare the grill to cook direct at 400°F with a cast iron griddle on the cooking grate.
  2. Put the flour on a flat plate and add half of the salt, cayenne and paprika. Mix well.
  3. Place the cornmeal on a flat plate and add the remaining salt, cayenne and paprika. Mix well.
  4. Break the eggs into a shallow bowl and add the water. Mix well.
  5. Dredge each filet in the flour, coating on all sides. Shake off any excess.
  6. Dip the filet into the egg wash, covering all sides. Shake off any excess. Dredge the filet in the cornmeal, coating evenly on all sides.
  7. Prepare as many filets as will fit on your griddle before cooking. Add enough vegetable oil to the griddle to coat well.
  8. When the oil is hot, add the catfish and cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Flip and cook another 2 minutes until golden brown on the second side.
  10. Transfer the fish to a plate covered with a paper towel to rest for 1 minute.
  11. For the sauce, combine the salsa and ranch in a small bowl and mix well. Serve on the side.
