Fish Frys are a favorite summer activity in the south, especially in Little Rock, Arkansas. Here is a fast and easy recipe for Arkansas Fried Catfish. Spice this fish any way you like it.  



  • 3 eggs
  • 2 pounds of catfish filets
  • ½ cup of flour
  • 1½ cups of bread crumbs
  • 2 cups of peanut oil
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Thoroughly rinse the 2 pounds of catfish filets, and soak up the excess moisture with paper towels.
  2. Season the fish filets on both sides with enough salt & pepper to suit your taste.
  3. Pour the bread crumbs out onto a dinner plate.  
  4. In a medium sized bowl, beat the eggs with 2 tablespoons of water. Set this mixture aside.
  5. Thinly coat both sides of each fish filet with flour.
  6. Dip the flour covered filets into the egg mixture. Hold each filet over the egg dish to let the excess egg drip off.
  7. Coat the fish filets on both sides with bread crumbs. 
  8. Fry the fish filets in peanut oil, and cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork (about 2 minutes on each side).
  9. Squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice onto the fish if desired. 

Serve the fired catfish with hush puppies, coleslaw, baked beans, and iced tea for an authentic, traditional southern fish fry.
