Beer Batter Cat


Absolutely the best catfish you can eat, make sure you have plenty of beer left after you make the batter.




3 lb. "fresh" catfish

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/4 cup flour

2 eggs, beaten

1 12 pack of beer (brand of your liking)

1/4 cup minced onion

3 cups vegetable oil

salt and pepper to taste


In a medium mixing bowl blend flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper together. In a separate medium mixing bowl beat egg well, add 1-12 oz. can of beer and minced onions, mix well. .

Cut the catfish into 2 inch cubes or strips. Heat up the shortening or vegetable oil. Roll the cat into the flour mixture, then dip into the beer-egg mixture, then back into the flour mixture. Place flour and dipped cat into the deep-fry, cook until golden brown. Since you have 11 more cans of beer left "now" will be a good time to get started on the rest of the 12 pack.

Serve up the cat with tarter sauce, catsup, or just like it is. Make sure you add a little tossed green salad, French fries, or some hush puppies for a delicious meal.
