If you’re a fan of grilled fish and want to try something new, this BBQ catfish recipe is a must-try. Catfish fillets are marinated in a flavorful blend of spices, then grilled to perfection, resulting in a tender and delicious dish that will leave your taste buds wanting more.
- 4 catfish fillets
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.
- Place the catfish fillets in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, ensuring each fillet is evenly coated. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
- Remove the catfish fillets from the marinade and place them on the grill. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
- Once cooked, remove the catfish fillets from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
- For added flavor, sprinkle some fresh chopped herbs, such as parsley or cilantro, over the grilled catfish before serving.
- Serve the BBQ catfish with a side of lemon wedges or a tangy barbecue sauce for dipping.
- To prevent the catfish from sticking to the grill, make sure it is well-oiled before placing the fillets on it.
