DELISH- Catfish Po’Boys Sandwhich

Hi Craft-O-Maniac Readers!  I’m Natalie from A Turtle’s Life for Me and I’m back with more yummy goodness that will hopefully have you running to your local grocery store because you just have to make this recipe!
My family actually didn’t grow up eating very much seafood, but my husband’s family was the complete opposite!  The majority of his relatives lived right along the Chesapeake Bay, so they were used to just going out to the backyard and fishing and crabbing for their dinner.  Not exactly how we did things on Main Street, but I’m learning!  
And so I present to you… Catfish Po’Boys
Catfish Po’Boys
Serves 4
1- 1 1/4 lbs. catfish fillets
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup cornmeal
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups shredded, bagged coleslaw mix
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
4 hoagie rolls
sliced tomatoes (optional)
hot banana peppers (optional)
hot sauce (optional)
1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Mix your bread crumbs with the cornmeal.  Coat each catfish fillet in the bread crumb mixture so it’s covered lightly on both sides.
2. Once the oil is hot, cook the catfish about 4 minutes per side, until golden and the fish flakes easily with a fork.  Remove to a paper towel to drain while you cook the rest of the fish.
3. Mix the mayonnaise, honey and lemon juice in a bowl.  Once it’s combined, add the bagged coleslaw mix. 
4. Lightly toast your hoagie rolls.  Spread a little coleslaw on the bottom of the roll. Top with the catfish.  Then top with tomato slices, banana peppers, cheese and more coleslaw.  Put a couple dashes of hot pepper sauce on top of all of it if you choose!
This is what my fillets look like before I cook them, just so you can see how lightly I bread them.
And then after they’re fried up to a golden perfection…
It still amazes me that I didn’t like coleslaw as a kid.  The tang is just SO good!
And here is one thing I can assure you of if you decide to make this recipe… it will not go well, and will likely cost you time… if you happen to go to the grocery store without your wallet.  Just a hunch.
Thanks again, Jen, for having me and I hope you’ll all stop by and say hi over at A Turtle’s Life for Me!  Everyone is always welcome!
