How to cook catfish strips

Cooking Guidry's brand Breaded Catfish Strips is a straightforward process, and there are several methods to choose from.

Oven-Baking Method:

  • 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.

Pan-Frying Method:

  • 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.

Deep-Frying Method:

  • 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!
