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.
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1-2 teaspoons finely crushed black peppercorns
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 catfish fillets, (about 1 pound total)
- 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges
- 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.
- Preheat grill or broiler.
- 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.
