Thoroughly mix cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne and seafood seasoning in bowl. Dredge filets in mixture to coat completely. Heat 2 to 3 inches peanut oil in large skillet to about 375 degrees. Drop 2 filets at a time in hot oil. Fry fish until golden brown, 4 to 7 minutes, depending on thickness, or until cooked as desired. Drain on paper towels. Variation: For fish fingers, cut each filet into strips, then dredge in dry cornmeal mixture. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
