Southern Fish and Chips is our take on a traditional British favorite. We bread our catfish fillets in a kickin' seasoned mixture, and serve them with a side of sweet potato fries for a truly Southern eating experience.

What You'll Need:

4 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick strips
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
2 cups self-rising cornmeal
2 teaspoons parsley
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 pounds catfish fillets

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine potatoes and oil; toss to coat completely. Spoon potatoes onto rimmed baking sheets in a single layer.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until they begin to brown. Turn potatoes over and bake an additional 5 to 8 minutes, or until golden.

Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; beat well. In another shallow dish, combine the cornmeal, the remaining cayenne pepper, the parsley, and remaining salt; mix well.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Dip catfish in egg mixture then in the cornmeal mixture, coating completely.

Cook catfish in batches 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until the coating is golden and the fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately with chips.


For a delicious sweet potato dipping sauce, mix 1 tablespoon of maple syrup with 1/4 cup mayonnaise.
