Cajun Baked Catfish Dijon

Cajun Baked Catfish Dijon

Doctor Greg 5

"Simple tasty baked fish recipe with that Cajun kick. Good for any flaky white fish fillets but catfish is the classic. Be careful how you mix the Dijon and the hot sauce, one overpowers the other or the two overpower the fish. I like to sprinkle some strong paprika (i.e. cayenne) at presentation for effect. Garnish with lemon wedges."

Absolutely loved it. Liked it so much I added a picture. My fiance' made Cajun rice and broccoli to go with it.

This was a good, easy and quick to prepare dish. I didn't have hot chili oil so I mixed some cayenne powder into the mustard and mayo mixture; it probably didn't change the end result very much.

It sound amazing but not a big fan maybe I did it wrong but at least I tried it

I substituted the chile oil for a dash of red pepper and paprika. Then I did not have fresh cilantro so I just added some parsley to the mayonnaise mix. During the broiling part, after I spread ...

So simple, yet fantastic flavor! I laid bacon slices across the fish, on top of the onion, so I left out the butter. Didn't have hot chile oil, so used a little Siracha sauce. Will definitely be...
