MethodIn skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; drain on paper towel–lined plate. Pour bacon fat into heatproof container; set aside.
Stir together half each of the salt, pepper and cayenne pepper; sprinkle over fish.
Pour buttermilk into shallow dish.
In separate dish, whisk together cornmeal, flour, parsley and remaining salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. One piece at a time, dip fish into buttermilk; dredge in flour mixture, patting to coat.
In clean skillet, heat 2 tbsp of reserved fat over medium heat; cook fish, in batches and adding more fat as needed, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with bacon alongside.
