From an old Shrubland family recipe, made famous by Miss Akelay.
Ingredients 1 pound catfish fillets
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
1 tablespoon creamy salad dressing (e.g. Miracle Whip)
1/2 teaspoon Shire Seasoning TM, or to taste
2 1/2 cups coarsely crushed buttery round crackers
1 cup vegetable oil (for frying)
Place catfish in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain off water, and mash up the fish. Stir in the onion, mustard, salad dressing, Shire seasoning™, cracker crumbs and egg. Mix until evenly blended.
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Form the fish mixture into patties, and fry in the hot oil. Drain on paper towels, and serve hot.
