  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1/4 cup dry thyme
  • 2 cups yellow mustard
  • seasoned flour, enough for dredging
  • 3 cups left over cooked black eyed peas, (these are best cooked with ham hock for flavor)
  • 1/2 cup bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1/3 cup roasted red peppers
  • all-purpose flour, enough to bind patties
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Spread mustard and thyme over catfish. For best results marinate overnight. Dust fish with seasoned flour patting off excess. Deep fry until golden brown.


In a medium bowl, coarsely mash beans with a fork, adding bacon and roasted peppers to mixture. Add just enough flour to mixture to help bind. Season with salt and pepper. Shape pea mixture into 4 patties. Melt butter and oil together in a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties and brown on both sides until crispy.
