This is a signature dish of The Downtown Grill in Oxford, MS. Named after the "gentleman pirate" of New Orleans, Jean Lafitte, it's the personal favorite of Oxford's most famous current resident, author John Grisham. One of my personal faves, too, and I hope it becomes one of yours. Takes a little time, but it's a feast! In fact, if you ever have to 'walk the plank', you might want to request this for your last meal. :) P.S. No single step is difficult. However, the fact that you're juggling 3 things on the stove at once (catfish, shrimp and Cajun cream sauce) makes it a little complicated. Please read the recipe through carefully first and decide whether you want to cook the catfish or make the sauce first. Good to have A Plan with this one.
