RECIPE: Make Sprig’s Fried Catfish

Hello! Sprig in Oak Grove offered a delicious fried catfish family meal with coleslaw. It has been rotated off of their family meal menu recently, but my family and I would love to have the recipe.

Sprig’s owner Jennifer Tiberia was glad to share this recipe. In our photo, it’s shown with house-made potato chips and coleslaw and accompanied by jalapeno cilantro tartar sauce.

This recipe makes some of the most delicious fried fish you will ever eat. The seasoned cornstarch produces a light batter that would complement many varieties of fish, so feel free to experiment at home. We adapted the recipe for the home cook by using a Dutch oven, but at the restaurant, the fish is cooked in a deep fryer.
