Fillets work well in these sandwiches. You can substitute tilapia or basa for catfish. Serve with coleslaw and vegetable chips.
4 (6-ounce) catfish fillets
1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns
3 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons minced shallots
1 1/4 teaspoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
4 curly leaf lettuce leaves
4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
8 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
How to Make It
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle fillets evenly with seasoning. Add fillets to pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn over; cook 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
Place buns, cut sides down, in pan; cook 1 minute or until toasted. Remove from pan.
Combine mayonnaise, shallots, mustard, and juice, stirring well. Line bottom half of each bun with 1 lettuce leaf; top each serving with 1 fillet and 1 tomato slice. Spoon 2 teaspoons relish on top of each tomato. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture over cut side of each top half of buns; place on top of each sandwich.
What makes this dish is a very good Cajun seasoning. We tried two different types, one that looked more like ground chili power, and one that had noticeably different spices/colors. The basic seasoning produced a mediocre sandwich that was quite boring. The other spice mixture definitely took this recipe to outstanding for us.
