Here's a simple one you can spice up how you want...

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
Peanut oil (for frying)

Just mix the ingrediants together and coat the fish! Sometimes I
add lemon pepper, sometimes cajun seasonings, etc. Easy and
crunchy. I prefer the cornmeal to the flour base because of that
crunch.

What the Cap'n said, only I dip the fish pieces in a beaten egg before the cornmeal.

Cornmeal is good, but if you really like it crispy try some Japanese Panko Bread Crumbs, those will give you a real nice crunch on the exterior.

Here is how I prepare fried fish for myself.

Give the fish a mustard bath for an hour or two.

Mix equal parts of "Zattarnas Fish Fry" and "Lousiana Fish Fry".

Pat the fish dry and roll in the dry mix.

Fry them up enjoy.

Catfish - Rinse and cut into "fingers", soak in buttermilk overnight.
Rinse fish and pat dry.
Dip fish in beaten egg.
Drop into baggie of seasoned crushed saltine crackers, shake to coat fish.
Fry in 375 degree oil til they just start to float.

We use to do the Cornmeal thing, now we do the Panko Bread Crumb thing. Light, nice crunch, readily available at the grocery store in the asian section.

Flour, Egg, panko bread crumb, fry, in that order
