Catfish nuggets are small pieces of catfish that are sold in the seafood section in the supermarket.  Catfish nuggets have no bones in them, they are like filets cut into pieces.  Catfish nuggets are usually very cheap, but they are very tasty if cooked using this recipe.  Fried catfish nuggets make a very delicious and EASY dinner!

On this photo, I served fried catfish nuggets with yellow rice and mango salsa!

Ingredients For Fried Catfish Nuggets Recipe:

1 lb catfish nuggets
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions How To Make Fried Catfish Nuggets:

Put the flour on a large plate.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat (I use 2 pans, so I can cook all the fish at the same time).  Note that you don’t need oil!  Catfish is an oily fish, and will release its own oil – as long as your frying pan is non-stick, the catfish will not stick to it.

Roll each catfish nugget in the flour on both sides, then put on a frying pan.  Cook for 4 minutes, or until golden-brown on the bottom.  Flip the catfish nuggets to the other side and cook for another 4 minutes.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve the catfish nuggets piping hot!

    I’ve never had catfish! That’s a lovely little dish though, I absolutely love mango salsa, we grow a lot of mangoes where I’m from.
