After my dad read my recipe for my broiled garlic lemon catfish, he suggested I try his recipe for cornmeal catfish.  Here’s his recipe:

Marinade the catfish is a 1/2 a cup of hot sauce and a 1/2 cup of light beer for 30 minutes in the fridge. Cover with a mixture of corn starch, yellow corn meal and salt & pepper. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 375. Only prepare enough to eat at one meal….it freezes lousy.

I did try it and it’s good.  But I would recommend using a light beer but not super light (e.g. Sam Adams Light would be good, Michelob Ultra is not — because that’s what I used and there was no flavor). 

Also, for those who want to know about how much cornmeal and corn starch to use — use about 1/4 cup of cornmeal and 2 tsp of corn starch.
