  • Thin, crispy fried catfish filets are a favorite in South Louisiana, and this unique twist on Cajun Sauce (with a touch of OLD BAY) is a robust accompaniment. No Cajun meal is complete without a side of red beans and rice and crispy hush puppies.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds catfish fillets
  • milk
  • 1 package McCormick® Fish Fry Seafood Fry Mix
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • Cajun Sauce:
    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon OLD BAY Seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Thyme Leaves
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder

Directions

  1. Cajun Sauce: In a medium bowl, mix mayo, milk, OLD BAY, thyme, honey, and garlic powder until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Heat vegetable oil to 350° in heavy saucepan or deep fryer (use enough oil for food to float but do not fill pan more than half full).
  3. Dip fillets in milk, shaking off excess. Coat with Fry Mix.
  4. Fry fish a few pieces at a time 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once to brown evenly. Remove and drain on paper towels. Drizzle Cajun sauce over catfish.
