  1. Add oil to a heavy, deep skillet to 3/4-inch depth. Attach a deep-fry thermometer to the pan and heat oil over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F. Combine the fish, salt, and cayenne in a medium-size bowl, toss to combine, and set aside. Place cornmeal in a shallow baking dish and set aside. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and set aside. Coat the fish with cornmeal and add a few pieces at a time to the oil. Fry the slices until they float and are golden -- about 5 minutes. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet to drain. Divide among 4 plates and serve hot.
