Catfish Po' Boys

I got this recipe from my Dad a few weeks ago and decided to give it a try.  I'm always a little hesitant about making fish because I expect it to taste like I got it in a restaurant and I often fall short.  However, this one was GREAT!  It is super easy and quick too!!
Catfish Po' Boys
2 tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise (I used olive oil mayonnaise...my favorite!)
1 tbsp lemon juice plus 1 tsp zest
1 tsp lime zest
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Dash of cayenne pepper
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
4 catfish or founder fillets (about 4 oz each)
4 soft hearty white rolls, split in half
1 ripe tomato, thinly sliced
4 pieces of Bibb lettuce (I forgot this, but it would have been great!!)
Heat broiler.  Coat a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray.  In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice, zests, garlic and cayenne until smooth.  In a shallow glass dish, whisk together cornmeal and Old Bay seasoning.  Coat fillets with nonstick cooking spray and dredge in cornmeal.  Place on prepared broiler pan and broil, 4 inches from heat, for 7-8 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
 To assemble, pull out some of the soft center of the rolls and discard.  Cover both sides of the rolls with the mayonnaise mixture and fill with a fish fillet, tomato slices and lettuce.  Don't forget the lettuce like I did!!  (I think some pickles might be good too.)

These were SO GOOD!!  Enjoy!  :)
