Guest Friday Feast: Catfish Bread by Dickie
Yes! Another Friday Feast by my talented uncle Dickie! If you know him, be sure to wish him a Happy Birthday on Sunday. Otherwise, enjoy his perhaps most well-known recipe around our family: catfish bread! So very good and perfect for appetizers, parties and snacks.
4-5 catfish fillets
Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
6 green onions, white and green parts sliced thinly
1 (4 oz) can chopped black olives
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 loaf French bread
- Make a mixture of 1 part liquid smoke and two parts soy sauce. Brush this mixture on both sides of the catfish fillets. Season liberally with Creole seasoning.
- Broil fillets until fish flakes, five minutes on each side. Watch closely!
- Set fillets aside to cool completely.
- Mix all other ingredients (except the bread) in a bowl and stir in chopped cooked fillets.
- Split French bread lengthwise and spread the fish mixture over the bread. Put on a foil lined cookie sheet and cover with a foil tent.
- Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is heated thoroughly and cheese is melted.
- Remove to a cutting board and allow to cool for a minute or two.
- Cut each half of the French bread in half again lengthwise. Cut across the bread quarters into strips that can be easily handled.
