Creating meals from scratch typically requires long trips to the grocery store, strict adherence to a recipe, and spending your third and final genie wish. Save your wish for more wishes by letting someone else cook with today's Groupon: for $10, get $20 worth of Southern-style cuisine at Cajun Catfish Company in East Memphis or Collierville.
At Cajun Catfish Company, chef Ron Bates sculpts dishes of fresh seafood with New Orleans recipes to create Southern-style catfish, crawfish, and steaks. On the dinner menu, culinary crafters play cuisine Jenga by stacking crab-cake stuffing and Bienville sauce on catfish ($13.50), and transform baguettes into voodoo-slaw-topped shrimp po boys, served with hand-cut fries and rémoulade ($8.50). The classic 8-ounce sirloin ($12.99) arrives at tables drizzled with bourbon sauce, and the new orleans gumbo ($7.89) sends patrons on a trip to Louisiana. Lunch favorites such as the blackened fish tacos ($7.99) provide noontime energy, and selections from the kids' menu sate pintsize appetites and the cravings of invisible friends.
Cajun Catfish Company
The chefs at Cajun Catfish Company's two locations scoop bowls of gumbo for their diners and fry USDA-certified farm-raised catfish fillets. Their Cajun-style catfish can be grilled with lemon pepper or Cajun garlic seasonings. Catfish is also served blackened or BBQ style. They keep their focus on Cajun classics, such as poboys and red beans and rice, but also include American mainstays, such as sirloin steaks and juicy burgers with grilled onions and jack cheese.
