Catfish Po'Boys

I was going through the tags of my blog trying to find this recipe because I could have sworn I'd posted it on here, but it wasn't under "fish" nor was it under "sandwiches" so I must not have made it since my blog's been going. I could have SWORN I had because I remember buying three packages of catfish at the store, one plain and two Cajun seasoned. No, I know I've made this because the recipe calls for broccoli slaw, and I actually used it last time I made it whereas I normally use regular cole slaw mix.

Found it. It's like the one entry that didn't have any tags! At least I know I'm not going crazy! Much easier if I can copy the recipe from a previous blog entry instead of having to find it online. This was originally from Cooking Light.

Catfish Po'Boys
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
1 pound catfish fillets, cut into 2 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (such as McCormick)
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fat-free sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
Dash of crushed red pepper
2 cups bagged broccoli coleslaw
4 (2 1/2-ounce) hoagie rolls with sesame seeds, toasted

Combine milk and catfish in a large bowl, tossing gently to coat. Remove fish from bowl; shake off excess milk. Sprinkle fish with salt. Combine cornmeal and Cajun seasoning in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag. Seal and shake to coat.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish; cook 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

While fish cooks, combine vinegar and next 4 ingredients (vinegar through pepper) in a medium bowl. Add broccoli coleslaw; toss well to coat. Spoon 1/2 cup slaw mixture onto bottom half of each roll. Arrange fish evenly over each serving, and top with top halves of rolls.


The husband got really excited when I told him this is what we were having. I knew he'd like it, and today was his first day at a new job, so I wanted something he'd enjoy. What can I say, I'm a good wife. :)

Like I said above, I use regular cole slaw mix, not broccoli slaw. I tried it once with the broccoli and didn't like it. I've also used a baguette for the roll instead of sandwich rolls, but I kind of forgot that when I was at the grocery store this morning.

Now to make sure I tag this one...
