Ingredients

  • Fried Cornmeal Crusted Catfish Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 (8 oz) catfish fillets, cut in half
  • Kosher salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 6 thyme sprigs
  • 3 parsley sprigs
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 4 kaiser rolls
  • .
  • Sticky Icky Mayo Ingredients
  • 1 cup mayo
  • ½ cup sweet pepper relish
  • ½ teaspoon minced raw garlic
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • Pinch chili flakes
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 4 kaiser rolls

Instructions

Heat a large dutch oven with oil over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 350 degrees. Place half of the thyme and parsley sprigs in the oil but be careful because it could splatter. This will help season the oil. Season both sides of the catfish with salt and pepper. Brush the catfish with more thyme sprigs (this will release some of the essences of the thyme onto the filletS). Season the egg whites, potato starch, and cornmeal with salt Dip each piece of catfish into the potato starch followed by egg white and cornmeal. Fry each piece of catfish until golden brown about 5-6 minutes. In the meantime make the Sticky Icky Mayo. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the mayo, sweet pepper relish, garlic, capers, chili flakes, salt, and pepper to taste. Set aside until ready to assemble sandwiches. Remove the catfish to a sheet pan lined with a sheet rack or a plate lined with a paper towel to drain the excess grease. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top of the fried pieces of fish. Cut the kaiser rolls in half and spread some of the mayo mixtures on the bottom and tops of the rolls. Place a piece of fish on the rolls and top with fresh arugula. Serve the sandwiches with a Pickled Veg Salad or your choice of side.
