Southern Pan Fried Catfish

Serve with your favourite low-carb side

Made with Coconut flour, instead of cornflour. I won’t lie, it tastes better with cornflour, but you get the same crispiness and sweetness with coconut flour.

Catfish is low in calories and fat, but has lots of proteins. It is also low in mercury and high in Omega-3. It is delicious and it was one of my favourite dishes 20 years ago. I say that because, now I prefer the rainbow trout!

It can be served with cauliflower mash, or roasted cauliflower, or roasted broccoli, or even roasted celeriac wedges.

4. Heat a little vegetable oil in a hot, nonstick skillet over low-medium heat. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish begins to flake and is golden brown throughout. If you have more time (before dinner), the catfish rounds can be baked at 210 C for 15-20 minutes for each side.

7. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the oil.

The catfish rounds are best to be reheated in the oven, if they are not all gone by the end of the dinner!
