You could also do an equal parts beer and flour, mix, let set on counter for a couple hours, coat, then deep fry. Salt and pepper right after they come out.
Or you could make salt and pepper catfish - which is just as it seems, a breading with a little too much salt and a LOT too much pepper. The fish is rather bland so the coating makes up for it.
