A Basket of Flavorful Sensations
La Juicy’s basket of fried catfish is a highlight of local Cajun cuisine. Our chefs engage in a distinct and decisive procedure to make the dish delightful and memorable. It is a threefold process.
Before, During and After Frying
La Juicy chefs pay special attention to the work before frying. The size of the fillet and the breading preparation determine the course of the dish. Our chefs do not fry the whole fillet, which is a rather clumsy approach. The fillet is cut into strips and thoroughly washed before breading.
Next, our chefs use a leavening agent for breading, which lends the traditional La Juicy crispiness to the bread. We apply two coats of breading for a better crust. There is a reason behind the layering. It ensures a thicker crust which is not brittle either. Also, the breading sticks better.
The ideal frying temperature is 350 degrees. La Juicy chefs are very particular about the use of oil. Furthermore, while deep frying, our chefs prefer not putting too much food at the same time. There should be enough room around each catfish while it is sizzling in the oil.
The crust, upon frying, turns golden brown. The final step, which involves slathering oil on the fried catfish, lends that exquisite mouth-feel to the dish. It is a critical job. Each catfish should soak just the right amount of oil. Misbalance can make the catfish soggy, rendering deep-frying pointless.
