Baked Catfish Po-Boy Recipe

Serves/Makes: 3 sandwiches


  • 3 catfish fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoons Cajun/Creole Seasoning Mix
  • 18-inch French or Italian Baguette, cut into 6-inch sections (or 3 6-inch hoagie rolls)
  • 2 cup romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • For the Remoulade:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon or grainy mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun/Creole Seasoning Mix
  • 3/4 teaspoon parsley
  • A dash garlic powder
How to cook Baked Catfish Po-Boy:
  • For the Fish and Remoulade: Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
  • Place catfish in a shallow dish and cover with buttermilk. Set aside while you prepare the remoulade by mixing all the remoulade ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • Mix cornmeal and 1 Tbsp Cajun/Creole Seasoning Mix together on a large dinner plate.
  • Turn the fish in the buttermilk, coating it well on both sides. Place the fish in the cornmeal mixture and coat well.
  • Grease an oven­proof wire rack and set it on a baking sheet. Place breaded fish on the rack and bake 12-­15 minutes, until firm and crispy.
  • To Assemble the Po-Boy: Cut the French baguette length­wise, not quite all the way through. Spread one side of the bread with 1 tablespoon of Remoulade sauce. Once the fish is nice and crispy, place the warm fish on the bread and top with lettuce and tom.
  • Enjoy!
