Here in Alabama, we eat Jambalaya year-round, however, the autumn and winter months are my personal favorite time to enjoy this flavorful dish! Since catfish has a consistently mild, yet sweet flavor, they are a perfect substitute for the chicken and/or shrimp in traditional jambalaya.

So without further ado, here is what you need to make this delicious Catfish Jambalaya with U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish Filets:

  • U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish Filets 
  • Smoked Sausage
  • Butter
  • White Onion
  • Garlic
  • Celery
  • Bellpepper
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Chicken Broth
  • Garlic Powder
  • Chili Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • White Rice

Once you have all of your ingredients, chop up your veggies, sausage (I also like to remove the casing), and catfish and set aside. The prep for this recipe is the hardest part since this Catfish Jambalaya can be made all in one large pot.

To start making your Jambalaya, melt butter in your pan at med/high heat and once it begins to bubble up, add in your smoked sausage and cook for about about 5 minutes or until browned. Once done, remove your smoked sausage and set aside.

Next add in your celery, onion, garlic, and bell pepper, and cook for about 5 minutes. Next add in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, salt, pepper, cajun seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce and stir until well combined.

Next, add in your catfish and allow them to cook for 5 minutes or until the catfish is no longer transparent. Catfish is such a versatile ingredient and its flaky texture makes it perfect for this dish! Once your catfish has cooked for a bit, add in your white rice, stir, and cover. Cook covered for 20 minutes until rice is fully cooked.

Once done, remove from heat, top with fresh parsley, and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve with freshly baked cornbread or enjoy it on its own!
