Directions

  1. Combine the eggs, Worcestershire, hot sauce, and milk together in a large bowl and beat it until frothy.
  2. In a shallow dish large enough to contain the fish, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, and lemon pepper.
  3. With a small knife, score both sides of the catfish four times across, deeply, about 11/2 inches apart.
  4. Dip the catfish into the egg wash, then dredge it completely with the cornmeal mixture, evenly coating the fish; set it aside.
  5. In a large pot or deep fryer, heat the oil to 325 degrees. Add the fish—one at a time for whole fish (if using fillets, two at a time)—and cook 7–8 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Serve with scallions and Dickey sauce.
  6. DICKEY SAUCE DIRECTIONS:.
