Ingredients



    32 oz * Channel Catfish nuggets
    1/2 Cup * coconut, sweetened shredded
    1/2 Cup, fluid * Heavy Whipping Cream
    1 large * egg white, fresh
    1 tsp * Pepper, white
    1 tsp * Pepper, black
    1/2 tsp * Caribbean Jerk Seasoning
    1 cup * Japanese Style Bread Crumbs, Panko

Directions

Thaw catfish nuggets prior to preparation if frozen.

In a medium bowl, mix heavy whipping cream and egg white.

In separate bowl mix dry ingredients: shredded coconut, panko bread crumbs, white pepper, black pepper, Caribbean jerk seasoning.

Thoroughly coat the catfish nuggets in the cream and egg white batter. Immediately roll nuggets into the dry batter until well coated.

Preheat oil in deep frying pan. Peanut oil is recommended, however, I used standard canola oil in place and it worked wonderfully. The oil should stand deep enough to allow the catfish to be mostly floating at the top. Oil should be approximately 350-360 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place battered fish into pan and allow nuggets to fry for 4-5 minutes, flipped, and then allowed another 3-5 minutes to fry. Breading should have a deep golden brown color when done.

Remove from pan and place onto paper towel to cool for 3-5 minutes at least before consuming.

Makes 4-5 servings, approximately 6-8 oz per.
