Recipe Description
We like to flavor the fillets with spicy seasonings, grill them, and serve them with a spoonful of buttered pecans. A fish grilling basket allows you to easily flip these delicate fillets. Preheating the basket on the grill also helps to prevent sticking.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
2 Tablespoon(T)  fresh flat leaf parsley, minced
2 Tablespoon(T)  fresh lemon juice
1/8 Teaspoon(t)  cayenne pepper
1/8 Teaspoon(t)  ground black pepper
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  kosher salt
2/3 Cup(c)  chopped pecans
1/4 Cup(c)  butter
1/2 Cup(c)  olive oil
1   oil for coating grill grate and fish basket
1/4 Cup(c)  cajun blackening rub
4   catfish fillets, 6 to 8 ounces each, rinsed and patted dry


Place catfish in a large baking dish and scatter rub all over them.

Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Heat the grill as directed.

Brush the grill grate and coat it with oil. Put the fish basket on the grill to preheat it. Coat the fish grilling basket with oil. Put olive oil in a shallow dish.

Dip each fillet in the olive oil and let the excess drip back in the dish. Place fillets into the hot grill basket and put the basket on the grill.

Cover and cook until the fish is just a bit filmy and moist in the center, 5 to 7 minutes per side. If your grill has a temperature gauge, it should stay at around 450 degrees F.

As the fish cooks, melt the butter in a cast iron or other heavy skillet over medium heat (directly on the grill if you have room). When hot, add pecans, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Cook, shaking the pan, until nuts are toasted and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve each fillet topped with some of the pecan mixture.
