Tonight I had a serious hankerin' for a fish sandwich. So, I remedied the situation by frying up about a 10-inch catfish fillet and laid it on a toasted roll with some Creole tartar sauce that I whipped up.
Here you have a serious man-sized fishwich!
1 lb Catfish fillet
1 pkg Lousiana-brand New Orleans Style Fish Fry with Lemon
1 loaf Good Italian bread
1/4 cup Creole tartar sauce (recipe below)
Oil for frying (I used peanut oil)
Creole Tartar Sauce
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
3 Tbsp Sweet pickle relish
1 Tbsp Cocktail sauce
1 tsp Lemon juice
1 tsp Creole seasoning
1 tsp Tabasco
Combine all of the tartar sauce ingredients in a small bowl, mix well and refrigerate.
In a large heavy pan or fryer heat the oil to 350º. You'll obviously need enough to completely submerge the fish.
Prepare the fish per the fry mix package instructions.
Turn on your broiler.
Fry the fish until it is golden brown and crispy, about three to five minutes depending on the thickness.
Cut an split a piece of the bread large enough to just hold the fish.
Toast the roll halves under the broiler.
Drain the fish on paper towels.
Schmear a good amount of tartar sauce on each roll half and add the fish.
