What you’ll need:

  • 4 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
  • 3/4 cup seasoned fish fry coating
  • Cooking spray
  • 8-10 Bibb lettuce leaves (washed and dried)
  • Toppings:
  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1 sliced red onion
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • 1/2 cup tartar sauce
  • For Slaw:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1-2 fresh jalapeños, chopped (adjust to your heat preference)
  • 2 cups slaw mix or shredded cabbage

How to prepare:

Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Rinse and pat the catfish dry with a paper towel before coating.

Add the seasoned breading to a shallow bowl and dip each piece of fish until fully coated.

Lay out the nuggets on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Place the nuggets in an even layer in the air fryer basket, sprayed side down.

Cook for 8 minutes.

Flip the nuggets over and cook for an additional 4 minutes.

Take a Bibb lettuce leaf and place a piece of fried catfish in the center.

Add toppings: diced tomatoes, sliced red onion, cilantro, sliced avocado, and a dollop of tartar sauce.

Serve the Fried Catfish Lettuce Wraps immediately while the catfish is still crispy.

Garnish with lime and enjoy!
