    Chipotle Slaw


    1. 1
      Using a sharp knife, cut the catfish filets into 1-inch strips on the diagonal.
    2. 2
      Place fish in a medium mixing bowl with the milk, Creole mustard, hot sauce, 1/2 tsp of salt and cayenne pepper.
    3. 3
      Stir to thoroughly combine and refrigerate for 1 hour.
    4. 4
      Make the Chipotle Slaw by combining the chipotle, mayonnaise, honey and lime juice in a large mixing bowl. Add the shredded cabbage, onions, 1/4 tsp salt and thoroughly combine. Refrigerate until ready to assemble the tacos.
    5. 5
      Heat the vegetable oil in a cast-iron skillet or a deep fryer until a thermometer registers 350 degrees.
    6. 6
      In a shallow plate, combine the flour, cornmeal and creole seasoning. Dredge each piece of fish in the flour mixture until well coated on all sides.
    7. 7
      When the oil is hot, gently place the fish in the hot oil and deep fry until the fish is golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes.
    8. 8
      Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fish to a paper-lined plate to drain. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    9. 9
      Using tongs, quickly dip the corn tortillas in the hot oil until they begin to sizzle. Transfer to paper-lined plates to drain briefly, then serve, with the catfish and slaw divided among the hot taco shells.

      DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly-the fish and slaw were fantastic together. The only change I made was to oven 'fry' the fish (and tortillas) w/ perfect results. I line a bake sheet w/ foil, spray it w/ Pam, place the fish on the pan, then spray tops of fish w/ Pam, bake at 350F for 25 minutes. We esp. liked the slaw-no vinegar-very nice change. Thank you, Mrs. Springfield, for sharing a great recipe!
