Each November, it's Alabama vs. LSU in football, which means great tailgating and food. Here is something that will score:
A Catfish Board
1 pound U.S. farm-raised Catfish, cut into two inch piece nuggets.
3/4 cup seasoned fish fry coating
Non-stick cooking spray
4 lemon wedges
1 cup of french fries
1 cup coleslaw
1 cup of salt & vinegar chips
4 slices of toasted garlic bread
1 ramkin of cocktail sauce
1 ramkin of tartar sauce
1 ramkin of hot sauce
Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees. Rinse and dry the catfish with a paper towel before coating. Add the seasoned breading to a shallow bowl and then dip each piece of fish until coated completely. Spread out nuggets on a baking
sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place nuggets in an even layer in the air fryer basket, sprayed side down.
Air fry for eight minutes. Flip nuggets over and cook for four minutes. Position catfish nuggets and all other ingredients on the board. Enjoy!
