Lemon-Pepper Catfish


From EatingWell:  November/December 1990

Though catfish is tender enough to be quickly sautéed, its firm flesh also stands up well to the grill. This recipe works best with thicker fillets.

4 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes



  1. Whisk together lemon juice, oil, pepper and salt in a shallow nonreactive dish. Add catfish and turn to coat with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill or broiler.
  3. Grill or broil fish on a lightly oiled rack, turning once, until the fish is opaque, about 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Serve with lemon wedges.
