Cajun Fried Catfish with Sauteed Bok Choy & Cajun Aioli

I absolutely love catfish! I always keep an eye out for it whenever I go to my local fish market. Whenever I see that they have it, I grab it! Catfish taste great grilled, baked, or fried, like in this recipe! 

I use banana flour to make the fry batter, it works amazingly well! Since banana flour has no banana flavor, it is very versatile; I use it in all different types of recipes! It works just like wheat flour!

Let's get to cooking! 

Cajun Fried Catfish with Sauteed Bok Choy & Cajun Aioli

Fish Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds catfish fillets
  • 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 cup banana flour
  • 1 cup water
  • avocado oil, to coat pan
Bok Choy Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch bok choy, halved
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
Cajun Aioli Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • juice from 1 lemon 
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning

Pat catfish fillets dry and season with salt and pepper.

Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, dijon mustard, garlic and cajun seasoning in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together banana flour, water,  cajun seasoning, salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Dip each catfish fillet in batter and fry in pan for about 4 minutes per side, or until fish is fully cooked and tender.

While the fish fillets are frying, we are going to make the bok choy! Heat oil in a wok pan over medium heat. Once hot, add garlic and minced ginger and saute for about 2 minutes. Add bok choy and saute for another 3 minutes.

Plate dishes and enjoy!!
