1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon Creole spices.
2 big eggs.
1 1/2 cups milk.
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour.
Two 5-ounce baguettes, cut in half lengthwise.
1 cup mayo.

2 russet potatoes.
2 tablespoons Creole flavoring.

1/4 cup mayo.

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees F. Heat the oil in a large, deep heavy-bottomed frying pan or Dutch oven over medium heat till a deep-fry thermometer signs up 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with paper towels.

For the fried fish po' young boys: If utilizing skin-on fish fillets, eliminate the skin, then cut into 4 equivalent pieces. Season each side of the 4 fillets with 1 teaspoon Creole flavoring. Whisk together the eggs, milk and 2 teaspoons of the Creole flavoring in a big shallow bowl, baking meal or cake pan. Whisk together the flour and the remaining 1 tablespoon of the Creole flavoring in a 2nd big shallow bowl, baking meal or cake pan.

Dip 2 fillets in the egg mix and carefully shake off any excess. Dip the fillets in the flour mix and shake off any excess. Fry the fillets, turning midway through, up until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Transfer the fish to the second ready baking sheet and keep warm in the oven till prepared to serve. Bring the oil back to 350 degrees F, then repeat with the staying 2 fillets.

For the Cajun French french fries: Cut the potatoes into 1 1/2- inch sticks and transfer to a big bowl of cold water. Stir until the water is cloudy. Drain the potatoes, transfer to among the ready baking sheets, top with paper towels, press down to blot and let sit up until the potatoes are dry, 1 to 2 minutes.

Working in batches, gently add some potatoes to the hot oil, thoroughly shaking the skillet if needed to make sure the potatoes are totally covered with the oil. Fry up until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer the fries with a spider to the exact same flat pan. Bring the oil back to 350 degrees F between batches.

Increase the temperature level of the oil to 400 degrees F. Working in batches, add the fries and cook till golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the exact same flat pan, spray the Creole spices over top and toss with tongs.

To put together the po' boys: Evenly spread out 1/4 cup mayo on each baguette half. Place 1 cup lettuce, 1/4 cup pickles, half of the tomatoes, 2 fried fish fillets and hot sauce on the bottom half. Add some fries if desired, then include the top half. Repeat with the staying baguette, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, fried fish fillets and hot sauce.

For the Creole mayo: Stir together the mayonnaise, Creole seasoning and hot sauce in a small bowl. Serve with the po' young boys and Cajun French fries.

  4. Great recipe and commentary,from Chef. Red fish or catfish are Louisiana norms, that accent was speaking loud and clear.
    * I also despise deep fried salmon…

  5. That looks super good 👍 i’m glad I’m not the only one that make meals like this 👍👍👍👏🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇺🇸

  6. My favorite po’ boy is shrimp and oyster but this looks like pure deliciousness…definitely sweet tea and some of those fries on the side.

  7. I’d prefer to have onions instead of fries on my po’ boy. Other than that, looks delicious!

  8. Momma called those “fishy fries.” When l take a new friend to a local dive bar that serves food like you cook, they say “The fries taste like fish!” And l say “YUP!!”

  9. Excellent video. I really need to go back to New Orleans not only to enjoy the sights but definitely the food. Thank you for sharing. From California with love❤️

  10. Loved your 2 videos (fish and chicken) and your presentation and sense of humor. My only question is about the oil after cooking. Did you discard it or save for re-use? That is one of my biggest reasons for not deep frying things. Again truly enjoyed your classes and would watch more if I could find em. Cheers friend.

  11. Woah nah! In my Nola accent. Bay bay I’m here for it all. Big ups to you. Keep doing what you doing. Ya heard me?! I came home this weekend and your cooking made me homesick.
