National Catfish Day | Breaded Catfish (Long John Silvers Style)
I did it, I did it! I replicated the Long John Silvers batter for National Catfish Day, which I remember as being pretty awesome. I don’t eat fast food anymore (and Chick-fil-a doesn’t count, mmkay?), but I remember loving that freakin’ batter. I found a pretty legit-looking copycat recipe on food.com and it had really great reviews so I tried it out with the little bit of catfish that I purchased. Just like I remember it tasting!
