Spicy Deep Fat Fried Catfish Strips

4 catfish fillets (cut in one inch strips)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Cajun Creole mustard
1 teaspoon horseradish
6 dashes Tabasco
1 tablespoon Tony Chachere's
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow corn meal
Canola oil

Cut into 1 inch (across) strips. Add to catfish strips, mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, Tabasco and Tony Chachere's. Mix well. Let sit overnight or for several hours. Heat enough oil to cover fillet strips well. When well heated, drop strips that have been breaded with flour and cornmeal mixed together and let fry until cooked and golden brown.

Remove from oil and let sit on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
