Not that it’s a brand but I love corn flour. Much better than corn meal. Not near as grainy. However idk a prepackaged mix that I love but when trying a new one, I try to get the ones that are the finest ground

I use my own blend , mainly : 3/4 corn meal , 1/8 flour , 1/8 corn starch . Season how you want too. The secret is the corn starch, gives a nice 'crunch' to the meal.

I mix my own similar to yours..... except never tried adding corn starch.


I mix about 2/3 corn meal and 1/3 flour.


To season.... I put a generous amount of salt, garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper [just a little].


For the fish "wash"...... I use 2 to 4 eggs [depending on how much fish I am cooking], some milk to thin the mixture a little and 10 to 20 drops of Tabasco sauce. Stir up the mixture well. After cutting up the fish, I soak the fish in this mixture at least 10 minutes and longer is better. I stir the fish a few times while it is soaking.

I highly seson da fish roll it in corn starch then a seasoned egg wash with a lil milk a lil mustard and eggs then seasoned corn flour or corn meal pending on how I feel. Thick cut fish I dont like fishy flavored corn chips. Very hot grease and pull when it floats.

Corn Flour
I beat an egg and add some Louisiana Hot Sauce, pass my fillets through that, dip it in corn flour then fry the fish till they float. When you scoop them out, drain them on a cooking cooling rack and sprinkle them with a little creole seasoning.

Just tried a new batter tonight and absolutely loved it. It’s zatarain’s wonderful style. Basically it’s just a fine ground corn flour. Have to season it yourself but texture is spot on for what I love in a good fried fish. We ended up just seasoning with a lil salt and black pepper. Was awesome. Is definitely my go to from here out
