Combine about 1/3 cup of corn meal,
salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. About 1/4 tsp of each. ( I like a LOT of pepper!)
Coat each piece of fish front and back and place in skillet with preheated oil (I used Canola), enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
While that is starting to cook, in a medium sized bowl combine a small bag of shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix (no dressing) with about 3 or 4 Tbsp of tarter sauce. No nasty comments here, please.
See how pretty? I use coffee filters for everything, but they work especially well as oil/grease blotters.
