  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeds removed, roughly chopped
  • 2 scallions green parts only, roughly chopped
  • cup mayo
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon pickling liquid
  • 3 or 4 pickles
  • 2 tablespoon Chipotle Mustard
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lbs catfish cut into ½" portions
  • 2 eggs whisked
  • ½ cup instant flour
  • 4 rolls
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • tomato


  • celery shaved
  • scallions thinly sliced


Make the Remoulade Sauce

  • Add the jalapeno pepper, scallions, mayo, lemon juice, pickling liquid, pickles, mustard, and parsley to a blender and pulse until almost smooth. (I like to leave some texture).
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill in the fridge until ready to use.

Fry the Catfish

  • When ready to cook catfish, heat enough oil to fill a large Dutch oven 2 inches.
  • Set up your dredging station with the eggs in one dish and flour in another.
  • When the oil reaches 350 degrees F, work in batches coating the fish in the egg, draining excess and dredging in the flour.
  • Place each piece in the oil and fry for 5 to 7 minutes, until cooked through.
  • Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Assemble the Sandwiches

  • Toast the rolls with the melted butter.
  • Spread the remoulade over the rolls, pile high portions of the fried fish and serve with sliced tomato, shaved celery, and sliced scallions.
