Simple tasty baked fish recipe with that Cajun kick. Good for any flaky white fish fillets but catfish is the classic. Be careful how you mix the Dijon and the hot sauce, one overpowers the other or the two overpower the fish. I like to sprinkle some strong paprika (i.e. cayenne) at presentation for effect. Garnish with lemon wedges.
I cut way down on the amount of sauce to make it a little healthier. I also used low fat olive oil mayo and Sriracha instead of hot oil. Usually I just use cajun spices but wanted to try something a little different. This was outstanding!
I substituted the chile oil for a dash of red pepper and paprika. Then I did not have fresh cilantro so I just added some parsley to the mayonnaise mix. During the broiling part after I spread the mayonnaise mix on the fish I added a thin slice of lemon on top of each piece. This was sooo delicious! With the lemon it made it so zesty I bet it would have been great on tacos. The only reason I did not try it on tacos was because it was that good by its self!
So simple yet fantastic flavor! I laid bacon slices across the fish on top of the onion so I left out the butter. Didn't have hot chile oil so used a little Siracha sauce. Will definitely be making it again soon!
