BLAND! My husband made a polite smile my way before reaching for the hot sauce. I whipped up a quick impromptu remoulade-like sauce to top it off but by that time the sandwich was cold and I was too disappointed to enjoy. Also added sliced tomatoes. My 5 year olds ate it though. Made southern collard greens and oven baked sweet potato fries to go with.
I grew up in New Orleans and can't ever remember a po-boy with coleslaw on it. Traditional toppings or 'Dressed' as the locals call it are mayo, lettuce, tomato and pickles, some also add ketchup. To season the fish a bit more authentically try Louisiana Fish Fry or Zatrarains Fish Fry. Both are pre-seasoned and work well.
I;m quite familiar with catfish poboys and this recipe is authentic. Where is the "oven baked" bit?
This recipe has certainly taken 'Oven Baked' to a new level! I was already to make it until I came to all that canola oil...think I'll pass.
everyone loved it
Loved the recipe, but why on earth does the description say it's "oven-baked"?
Incredibly easy to make. Everyone loved it. The breading was remarkably crisp. You can't get it any better. Even if you were on Bourbon Street!
Very good; just be sure to season the fish well and add the slaw and pickle for flavor. See my entire review at: http://themomchef.blogspot.com/2010/03/crispy-catfish-po-boys-from-fine.html
Absolutely delicious!! It was so fast and easy to make and I have to admit we stuffed ourselves silly. This is definitely on my favorites list.
