Cajun-Styled Grilled Catfish

Serves 4


1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon creole seasoning
1 teaspoon blackened fish seasoning (I like Prudhomme’s blackened redfish seasoning)
4 catfish fillets, 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
2 tablespoons lemon juice
lemon wedge (to garnish)


Combine first 4 ingredients; rub the seasoning on catfish. Sprinkle lemon juice on both sides of fish.

Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium hot coals (350-400°F) 5 minutes on each side until fish flakes easy with a fork. Garnish with lemon, if desired.

This batter is great on any fish. My favorite is catfish but tilapia is just as good. An absolutely wonderful recipe! Gives a nice crispy crunch!
