Remoulade Dipping Sauce


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 3 minutes or until slightly wilted.
  2. Season with ½ teaspoon of the salt and ¼ teaspoon of the cayenne pepper. Add catfish pieces and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in garlic and green onions. Sauté for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and cool.
  4. Mix eggs, milk, baking powder and remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper. Add flour, ¼ cup at a time, beating well until the batter is smooth. Fold in catfish mixture.
  5. Heat shortening in a deep fryer or a large, heavy saucepan to 360°F on a deep-frying thermometer.
  6. Drop heaping spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil, one at a time.
