8 Min

Looking to turn a good taco into a crazy good one? It’s easy. All you have to do is make sure your start off with farm-raised catfish. It’s super mild, has the perfect texture, and is so affordable. So whether you make these for a weeknight supper or for when a bunch of friends come over to watch a ball game, you can’t miss.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 (6-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • 3 cups Shredded coleslaw
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F. In a shallow dish, mix flour, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt. Place catfish fillets one at a time in the flour mixture, turning to coat on both sides.
  2. Coat the air fryer baskets with cooking spray. In batches, place fillets in the air fryer basket and also lightly spray each fillet with cooking spray. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Remove from air fryer and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine all ingredients for slaw; toss until evenly coated. Place the slaw evenly down the center of tortillas.
  4. Cut catfish into 1-inch chunks and arrange on top of the slaw. Serve immediately.
