Spicy Grilled Catfish Filets – Really Tasty

Mmmm, yummy, and Spicy Grilled Catfish Filets! I have a hard time getting my family to eat fish, but they loved this one!

 

This is a really tasty, economical, and different way to enjoy fish!

Lots of flavor from the marinade and easy cleanup! Winners in my book.

This is best marinated for at least an hour but no more than 2 hours. In a pinch, just let it marinate while the grill is heating.

I am sure this would work very well on any firm, mild fish.

When I made this I was a little crunched in the time department so I only got to marinate it for 1 hour and it was delicious. Plan ahead!

You can use a cast-iron skillet instead of your grill on a rainy day.

Grilled Lemon Salmon – Fantastic Recipe

Having lemon in the name of this Grilled Lemon Salmon recipe really threw me as there are only slices put on during the last bit of grilling.

 

But it’s enough. This is a fantastic recipe. There wasn’t a flake of salmon left on any of my family’s plates.

The marinade was not overpowering, and the lemon gives it a little extra tang that is just right.

This will definitely be my salmon recipe of choice from now on!

Baked Tilapia Parmesan – Easy and Delicious

This Baked Tilapia Parmesan gets its delightful taste from the freshly grated Parmesan. Baking gives it a lightly browned finish and makes it oh so good.

 

There’s a lovely blend of flavors in the topping, lots of layers to it (sour, salty, a tiny bit spicy, a little bit herby, and cheesy).

The fish is beautiful when it comes out of the oven and tastes even better than it looks.

Definitely a recipe to add to your recipe rotation!

Crab Cakes – Great Appetizer or Entree

I happen to love crab cakes and these are the best I’ve ever eaten. I got the recipe from Cuisine magazine. Absolutely delicious and easy to make!!!

 

Every time I make them I hear a lot of oohs and ahhs and requests for the recipe.

It’s really hard to go wrong with that great crab flavor for a good seafood dish, either as an appetizer or as part of the main meal.

There’s a local family-owned restaurant in town known for their crab cakes. My friend said they were the only crab cakes she liked until she tried these. These are even better.
