There are multitudes of Southern fried fish recipes, but sometimes it's nice to have a classic recipe to depend on. This Classic Fish Fry Recipe is perfect whether you're just learning how to fry fish or a seasoned pro. The best part about this recipe is that any fish can be cooked in this crispy cornmeal mixture. To make the coating, combine flour with cornmeal, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Coat the fillets in this simple mixture and fry the fish in a skillet of hot vegetable oil. The light coating of this recipe is the perfect complement for any type of fish because it doesn't take away from the flavor of the fish.
