Creole Mustard Southern Fried Catfish

Today is ‘Fat Tuesday’ also known as Mardi Gras…so I’m sharing my Creole Mustard Southern Fried Catfish recipe…I first had Creole Mustard Catfish at a local restaurant (long gone now) and have been trying to perfect my own recipe for years…I think this one does the job…spicy and crispy with a creamy cajun sauce…yummy!

Creole Mustard Southern Fried Catfish
2 catfish fillets
Dijon mustard
Creole seasoning or Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
salt & fresh ground pepper
2 eggs
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup light cream
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons sour cream
lemon wedges

In a small bowl combine 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard with 1 teaspoon Creole/Cajun seasoning; whisk well. Smear on both sides of the catfish fillets. Place the flour, cornmeal, 1 tablespoon Creole/Cajun seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt and some fresh ground pepper in a shallow dish; mix well. In another shallow dish whisk the eggs until lightly beaten. Heat canola oil on medium high heat in a large skillet. Dip the catfish in the beaten egg then in the flour/cornmeal mixture. Cook in heated skillet 2-3 minutes on each side; turning carefully. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine the light cream, Worcestershire sauce, and sour cream with 3 tablespoons Dijon and 1 teaspoon Creole/Cajun seasoning; bring to a simmer and cook a few minutes, whisking occasionally. Plate Creole Mustard Southern Fried Catfish, drizzle with Cajun sauce and squeeze with lemon juice. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
