Cajun Catfish Po'Boy

Since moving to Texas, I've seen catfish all over the place.

I don't think I had eaten catfish before, so I thought it was time - and tried my hand at a Cajun inspired sandwich.


The fillets were quite large and made excellent po'boy fillings.

As for being Cajun, I turned to my trusty stock of Louisiana Fish Fry supplies.


I chose to air fry the fillets to get a crunchy finish, but deep frying would also give the catfish lots of flavor. Baking is also another healthy cooking option.
