    2 cups enriched Washington Self-Rising Corn Meal
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1 1/3 cups milk
    2 tablespoons cooking oil
    1 tablespoon sugar (optional)

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

    Corn Bread:
    Using the 2 tablespoons of oil, coat a cast-iron skillet or 8-inch or 9-inch square pan. Place the pan in the oven to heat. In a mixing bowl, combine the corn meal and sugar. Stir in the milk and the egg, mixing together until the batter is smooth. Pour batter into the pre-heated skillet or pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

    Corn Muffins or Corn Sticks:
    Lightly grease muffin tins or corn stick pans with oil. Place pan in oven to heat. Follow the batter directions above. Pour batter evenly into preheated muffin tins or corn stick pan. Bake 15-20 minutes.

    Makes 12 large corn muffins or corn sticks.


    1 cup Washington Self-Rising Corn Meal
    1 ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon ground red pepper
    ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
    ½ teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    ½ teaspoon ground cumin

    (For spicy fish, add 1 teaspoon each of red and black pepper)

    Pan Fried or Deep Fried Fish:
    Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Dip fish fillets in water and then place them in the breading mixture, turning several times to coat the fish. Pour about ¼” of vegetable oil in a large skillet and heat on medium. Fry coated fish 2-3 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. If deep frying, fry fish at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes.

    Oven-Fried Fish:
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour just enough oil into a shallow pan to cover the bottom. Coat fish fillets as directed above and place in pan, turning to coat both sides with oil. Bake for 10-20 minutes, turning the fish when half done. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish.
