Three of my favorite things ~ summertime, grillin’ and catfish…
|Voila! Ready to eat!|
The seafood case at Jewel is filled with an abundance of large delicious fillets of catfish now. And, grilling is the simplest method of preparing them. Catfish is a firm-fleshed fish, with a distinct taste I like, which doesn’t fall apart easily, making it perfect for grilling.
The secret to tasty grilled catfish is in the treatment before grilling. That’s where this rub is the star ~ it’s spicy, adding vibrant flavor quickly to the mild fish, with an appealing color, and a crispy crust also.
