Guest Friday Feast: Catfish Bread by Dickie

March 19, 2010

 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.

Catfish Bread


4-5 catfish fillets

liquid smoke

soy sauce

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.
