Basic Fried Catfish or Talapia

8-10 filets
Canola Oil ( amt depends on selecting a cast iron skillet or a deep fryer)
1/2 C ea. yellow mustard and creole mustard
3 C flour
2 C cornmeal
1/2 C of basic creole or cajun seasoning-see my house blend

In large plastic container (use one that has a lid!), mix 1/4 c season blend and mustards, add fish filets mix to coat fish. Let stand at least 30 minutes (covered) at room temp-trust me.

Using a large cookie sheet or square sheet cake pan, mix the flour, cornmeal and season blend. Dredge fish in flour and fry hot oil in batches for 3 minutes each batch
