Ingredients:

TZATZIKI DIP:

  • 1 Cup thick, Greek style yogurt
  • 1/3 English cucumber, shredded
  • Juice of half lemon
  • Fine chopped mint + dill (fresh)
  • Salt + Pepper to taste

POPCORN CATFISH:

  • 2 catfish fillets (or any fish), cubed
  • 1L Mazola Corn Oil, for deep-frying
  • 1 Bag of Catch + Cook, Flame flavour
  • 1 cup pickled banana pepper rings

Instructions:

FOR THE POPCORN CATFISH

  1. Start by getting your pot or deep fryer full of Mazola Corn Oil and set the temp to anywhere between 350-375F.
  2. Dip your fish cubes in water, then into a bowl of the dry Catch + Cook. Shake off excess coating and repeat by dipping quickly back into the water, then into the dry mix.
  3. Allow the cubes to rest for a minute before putting them in the oil. This will allow for the dry coating to bloom for proper adhesion.
  4. Prep your pepper rings by tossing them directly from the jar, into the Catch + Cook, then shake off excess.
  5. Fry the fish and peppers rings in batches until golden brown.
  6. Top with chopped scallions or chives and enjoy your fried snacks dipped in the delicious tzatziki

FOR TZATZIKI

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix.
  2. Serve and enjoy!
