Cornmeal Crusted Catfish with Grilled Tomato and Sweet Onion Salad

Yield:
4 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 beefsteak tomatoes, sliced into 1/2 inch slices
  • 2 Vidalia onions, sliced into 1/2 inch slices
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne Pepper
  • 4 catfish fillets
Directions

Season the tomatoes and onions with salt and pepper on both sides. Brush the tomatoes and onions with canola oil on both sides. Place tomatoes and onions on a hot grill and grill for 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and coarsely chop. Place in a bowl and add balsamic vinegar and thyme. Check for seasoning. Set aside.

In a shallow dish, combine cornmeal, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Lightly dredge the catfish fillets in the cornmeal, pressing lightly to make the cornmeal stick well. Place a saute pan on the grill and heat. When the pan is hot, add 3 tablespoons of canola oil and heat. Place the catfish in the pan, and pan fry for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the cornmeal is golden brown. Serve the catfish with the grilled tomato and onion salad.
