¼ cup of Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce
1 Tbs of apple cider vinegar
1 ½ tsp of Slap Ya Mama Original Cajun Seasoning
¼ tsp garlic powder
Mix milk, Jay D’s Lousiana Molasses Mustard, Milk and Slap Ya Mama Hot Sauce together in a mixing bowl. Add catfish filets and let marinate for up to an hour in the refrigerator.
For the slaw aioli, mix mayonaise, Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce, vinegar, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning and garlic powder. Let chill for at least 30 minutes. Toss cabbage with aioli and set aside.
Heat frying oil to 350 degrees Farenheit. Remove catfish fillets from marinade, dredge in fish fry then drop in fryer. Fry the fillets for about 3 minutes or until golden brown, then drain on paper towels.
To assemble the poboy, place 2 slices of tomato on the bottom half of the bread, lay the catfish over and top with slaw.
