Expert Tips

Cajun seasoning is a bold mixture of celery, chiles, salt, red pepper, paprika, mustard, garlic and onion.

White or yellow cornmeal can be used in this recipe. We used yellow cornmeal for a bit more color.

Try another freshwater fish, such as perch or trout, for these fishcakes.

For Cajun Crab Cakes, Cajun Crab Cakes, use three 6-ounce cans of lump crabmeat in place of the fish. Drain the crabmeat well before use.

The catfish cake mixture also makes a great appetizer. Use rounded tablespoons to create bite-sized cakes.
