I'm making a celebration meal for a friend who grew up eating soul food. What would be some other good side dishes to make with it? My parent's caught the catfish, I've got home butchered/smoked hocks in the freezer, ect, so I can make this pretty legit. I thought about making some poke salat, but I think it's getting a little late to pick some. I need to go check if they have any purple yet.
So far, the menu is fried catfish, hushpuppies, home frozen corn, coleslaw, fried okra, mac and chesse, and bread pudding. Tarter sauce and hot sauce too.
