Cajun Fish Recipe

Cajun Fish
I had a few people ask me what to do with the
pineapple salsa. Here is one thing you can do with it – serve it along side or on top of fish! This is a recipe for a delicious and spicy fish coating! For this recipe I used fresh crappie fillets but other types of fish such as tilapia or bluegill would go great as well. I felt the Cajun seasoning played an important role giving it just the right amount of heat. There are only 3 steps to this quick and easy recipe. The fish is first tipped in batter, rolled in a spicy cornmeal mixture, and then fried in the pan. This recipe is best served with Tabasco sauce, pepper sauce, or pineapple salsa.

    You can stick the whole thing into a light french baguette and make a po’ boy out if it!
