Here are some favorite catfish recipes of ours.

Citrus Grilled Catfish Recipe

  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1/4 cup oil (I have a preference for olive oil)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 2 tsp. dry minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp. tabasco sauce
  • 4 sliced lemon wedges
Rinse fillets and pat dry. Combine the remaining ingredients minus the lemon wedges in a flat dish (casserole dishes work great). Add catfish fillets and marinate in a refrigerator overnight, flipping several times. Grill fillets over medium-hot coals or over medium propane heat, basting the catfish frequently with the marinade. Expect about 5 to 8 minutes on each side or until the catfish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Squeeze lemon wedges over the fillets and serve. A great catfish recipe no matter where you live.
