Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the seasoned fry cornmeal: mix together all the ingredients (makes enough for about five 5-7 oz. catfish fillets).
  2. In a deep frying pan or pot, preheat enough vegetable oil to completely submerge the catfish, to 350°.
  3. Dredge the catfish fillet in the seasoned cornmeal; fry fillet in oil for 8 minutes (the catfish will float when done).
  4. Remove fillet from oil and place on paper towels or a brown paper bag to drain.
  5. Spread the top slice of toasted french bread with mayo.
  6. Add a layer of hamburger dill pickle slices and sprinkle with shredded green cabbage.
  7. Put the catfish fillet on the bottom slice; sandwich the two halves together; cut on the diagonal and serve right away.
  8. Additional or other topping suggestions: cheddar cheese, bacon, celery-seed laced coleslaw, jalapeno tartar sauce, Louisiana hot sauce.
