Catfish Sandwiches with Creole Mayonnaise

Fillets work well in these sandwiches. You can substitute tilapia or basa for catfish. Serve with coleslaw and vegetable chips.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 5 minutes
    •    Cook time: 10 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •   Cooking spray
    •   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


  1. 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.
  2. Place buns, cut sides down, in pan; cook 1 minute or until toasted. Remove from pan.
  3. 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.
