Cooking Guidry's brand Breaded Catfish Strips is a straightforward process, and there are several methods to choose from.
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Place the frozen catfish strips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until they are crispy and golden brown.
- Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Add a small amount of oil (vegetable or olive oil) to the pan and heat it.
- Place the frozen catfish strips in the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until they become golden and crispy.
Air Fryer Method:
- Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
- Arrange the frozen catfish strips in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
- Cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket or flipping the strips halfway through to ensure even cooking.
- Preheat your deep fryer or a large pot of oil to 350°F (175°C).
- Carefully add the frozen catfish strips to the hot oil in small batches to avoid overcrowding.
- Fry for about 2-3 minutes or until they turn crispy and golden brown.
- Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
Regardless of the cooking method you choose, make sure to cook the catfish strips until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) to ensure they are fully cooked and safe to eat. Enjoy!
