  • Place catfish fillets in a large shallow baking dish. Sprinkle hot sauce over the top and turn the fillets to coat.

  • Combine Cajun seasoning, flour, cornmeal, bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon granulated garlic, 1 tablespoon granulated onion, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a large brown paper bag. Add catfish fillets and shake gently to coat fillets thoroughly.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry breaded catfish fillets until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Place on paper towel-lined paper plates to drain.

  • Spread each hoagie bun with 1/4 cup remoulade-style spread. Place 2 catfish fillets on top and top with 1 to 2 cups coleslaw. Garnish with lemon wedge, cherry tomato halves, and banana pepper rings.

I would actually prefer this without the bread or maybe a burger size. Read More

This was very good! I only made 1/2 of the 'breading', and I still had quite a bit leftover after coating all the fish, so... I also reduced the garlic powder in the slaw, as 1 Tbsp. granulated garlic powder seemed a bit much to me. The fish itself came out very flavorful and moist. Everything went together nicely! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

The breading is perfectly seasoned. The spicy slaw is unique and delicious and adds nice cold crisp mouth feel. I've been using Allrecipes for 5 years now and this is the first review i have written. After dinner i threw together another batch of the breading for the next time. Hope this gem doesn't stay hidden. I fried at 320 for 5 minutes. Read More
