Bring It On Catfish!

You might be a Fritter Chick if you think Catfish is THE OTHER WHITE MEAT! Our Fritter Chick In Training was about four years old when she was speaking with her Aunt Bilinda, whom she calls her Aunt B. (Is she southern or what?) Aunt B said she was coming to visit her and she responded to her Aunt B with, “Well, Bring It On Catfish!”. So, bring it on catfish and try this recipe!

Bring It On Catfish with Fritter Chicks Salsa

CATFISH:

2 tablespoons fajita seasoning
4 catfish fillets
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

SALSA:

1 medium green pepper, diced
3/4 cup diced Vidalia onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon butter
1-1/2 cups fresh corn
3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 pound peeled, raw shrimp
1/2 teaspoon fajita seasoning
Generous dash of hot sauce

In a small bowl, combine the fajita seasoning and rub over catfish fillets. In cast iron skillet, fry fillets in oil over medium-high heat on each side for 4-5 minutes. Remove.

In the same skillet, sauté the green pepper, onion, jalapeno and garlic in butter until tender. Add the corn, and tomatoes; cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until corn is tender. Add shrimp until shrimp turn pink. Stir in fajita seasoning and hot sauce. Serve with catfish.
