Rinse and pat catfish dry. In a shallow dish, mix together milk, salt, pepper, and paprika. Dip pieces of fish in milk mixture. Roll fish in cornmeal and set pieces on waxed paper to dry. Heat 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Deep fry fish, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Use the same oil for hushpuppies.

To make hushpuppies, mix cornmeal with baking powder, salt, pepper, and onion. Mix egg with milk and whisk into cornmeal. Spoon hush puppies into hot oil and fry until golden brown.
