Fried fish is one of my favorites especially with dhal and rice but it’s also a delightful snack/finger food that can be enjoyed at any event! This recipe uses CINNAMON powder from JGM Products, a manufacturer and distributor of seasonings/spices in Trinidad and Tobago, as one of the spices. Cinnamon in fried fish?? Yes….you will love it!


  • 1.5 lb. catfish, cleaned, washed and cut into chunks
  • 4 tbsp. JGM Products Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tsp JGM Products cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp JGM Products cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp JGM Products garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup fine cornmeal
  • salt to taste
  • Oil for frying


  1. Combine cajun seasoning, cinnamon powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour, cornmeal and 2 tbsp of the dry seasoning mix that was made in step 1. Mix well.
  3. Whisk egg then add the remaining dry seasoning mix. Whisk well.
  4. Add to the fish and ensure all pieces are properly coated.
  5. Coat all pieces with the flour/cornmeal mixture. 
  6. Fry until golden brown.
  7. Enjoy with a garlic sauce or even my favorite, dhal and rice.
