  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds catfish fillets

  • 1 lemon 

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise 

  • 1 tablespoon honey 

  • 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced

  • 1 apple, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded

  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal 

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder 



  • Cut half of the lemon in slices or wedges, and set aside. Juice the remaining half into a large bowl.

  • To prepare the slaw, combine the mayonnaise and honey with juice; reserve 2 tablespoons of the juice mixture. Stir the celery, apple, and cabbage into the juice mixture in a bowl, and set aside.

  • Sprinkle the catfish fillets with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and brush with the reserved juice mixture. In a shallow dish, combine the cornmeal and chili powder, and coat the fish with the mixture.

  • In a 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat. Cook the fish in hot oil 3-4 minutes per side until it is golden and flakes easily with a fork. Serve the fish with slaw and lemon.
