Method:

To make the catfish sandwiches, first mix the cornmeal, salt, granulated garlic, Cajun seasoning and white pepper together in a small bowl. Heat the vegetable or corn oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the catfish in the cornmeal mixture until both sides are covered well. Gently place the filets in the skillet skin-side-up and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the filets and cook until they slightly float in the oil or are golden brown. Remove the filets and place them on clean paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve on brioche roll with leaf lettuce, sliced tomato and onion if desired.

To make the potato salad, steam or boil potatoes until they are tender, then remove from heat. Once the potatoes have cooled, cut them into quarters. Coarsely chop the hard-boiled eggs and dice the scallions. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and add seasoning to taste. Serve on crisp kale or lettuce.
