Grilled Catfish with Spicy Rub

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. 

Rubbed for the grill

Perfect summer fare from the grill that will melt in your mouth and is healthy too!

Grilled Catfish with Spicy Rub


4 catfish fillets

3 teaspoons paprika

3 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons ground coriander

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon seasoned pepper

Cooking spray


Combine all rub ingredients in a small bowl.

Lightly spray grill pan and fish with cooking spray.

Apply the rub to catfish.

Grill over medium-high heat until fish flakes with a fork.
