Crispy Baked Catfish Po’boy
Crispy Catfish Po'Boy
Oven-baked Catfish breaded in cassava and coconut flours makes a healthier “breaded” fish. Then top off the sandwich with a spicy, homemade relish to make a Sizzlefish Po’boy!
What Makes A Po'Boy?
A New Orleans classic. Traditionally this sandwich calls for French bread, lettuce, pickles, tomato, and your choice of filling. For our take on the Po'Boy sandwich, we chose to mix things up and use a homemade relish in place of pickle and tomato, added red onion slices, and chose Catfish as our delicious main ingredient.
How Long Does It Take?
While the cook time for this recipe is a little bit longer, we think you'll agree it's worth it once you take your first bite. With only 15 minutes of prep time and most of the cook time is the fish in the oven, you'll be digging in in no time!

For the Fish
For the Sandwich
For the Relish
Make the relish by adding all the ingredients to a skillet and cook on high 5 minutes.
Stir occasionally until most of the moisture is gone 7-8 minutes more. Turn off the heat.
Cool briefly in the skillet then transfer to a glass dish and place in the refrigerator to chill.
While the relish cools, preheat the oven to 375 F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, whisk together the egg.
In another bowl, add the cassava flour, coconut flour, paprika, onion powder, salt and pepper. Stir together.
Dip each catfish filet into the egg mixture then immediately into the flour mixture. Pat the flour mixture onto the filets liberally then transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 375° F 25-30 minutes or until the filets are crispy brown. Remove from the oven.
Assemble the sandwiches by placing the greens on the bottom, then the catfish filet followed by the relish and sliced red onions. Enjoy immediately!
