Is there anything like good fried catfish? Try these Fried Catfish Po’boys with Spicy Remoulade Sauce and bring a classic southern sandwich home tonight!
I’m not from the south. I didn’t grow up with noodling or any peculiar interest in delving into waters to wrestle with the unknown. Actually, as a kid, catfish kind of freaked me out. They were certainly nothing to look at. But, I was lucky enough to have fried catfish a time or two and know that it’s pretty damned good when done right. Fried well with a crispy outer crunch and moist fish on the inside, you won’t even care that catfish may be one of the ugliest fresh water fish there are. Unless eels are fish, because they are totally freakishly ugly.
These fried catfish po’boys hit the spot with a kicked up remoulade sauce featuring spicy chipotle mustard (read: my recent El Diablo Mustard love – not even paid to say that) and topped with the crunch of shaved celery and scallions. Bust out some napkins. Dinner just got down home delicious. Don’t try to impress your fancy feast friends with this one. Save it for the people you know who matter.
The one’s who aren’t afraid to lick their fingers in front of you.
