Catfish Nuggets w/ Cajun Garlic Aioli


  • 1 T of Old Bay

  • 2 T of Spicy Creole Tony's Seasoning

  • 1/2 T of Lemon Juice

  • 1 cup of Flour

  • 1 cup of Cornmeal

  • 1 pound of Catfish Nuggets

  • 1 T of Pepper

  • Canola Oil

  • Lemon for Garnish

Cajun Garlic Aioli

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 T lemon juice

  • dash of garlic powder

  • dash of onion powder

  • dash of smoked paprika

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Make sure your catfish is dry before seasoning. In a bowl, mix catfish with old bay, creole seasoning, and lemon.

  2. In a separate bowl or plastic bag (I used a plastic bag) mix your flour, cornmeal, and pepper. (as much pepper as you like)

  3. Place your seasoned catfish in your flour/cornmeal mix, making sure your pieces are completed covered.

  4. Using a large saute pan, heat your oil. Tip: sprinkle a little water into the oil, if it sizzles it is ready.

  5. Fry your catfish a couple minutes on each side, you want to look for a nice golden brown color. Drain the nuggets on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

  6. In a small bowl, mix all of the aioli ingredients together.

  7. Enjoy!

Happy Planning :),
