Wine-Marinated Spicy Grilled Catfish




The thrill of the grill last night was catfish for us, no matter that it was really chilly out there, and like a late September day!



Most of the time, I cover the fish with a spicy rub, but recently I saw this recipe on a card at the grocery store, and had to give it a go.

Wine in addition to lime juice, chopped parsley, dry mustard, chili powder and seasonings are stirred together for this marvelous marinade.  



The recipe called for Chardonnay, I had Pinot Grigio on hand, and used it.  The catfish marinated for a short time and was cooked over a hot grill for a really tasty catfish dinner.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
2 tablespoons lime juice
½ cup Pinot Grigio
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 pound catfish fillets
Lemon slices, optional

Method:

Combine all ingredients for the marinade, in a medium bowl, except catfish and lemon slices.
Add catfish to bowl and let marinate in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Drain fillets, reserving marinade.
Place fish on hot grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning once, and basting occasionally reserved marinade.
Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Serve

ENJOY!

  2. Pam, That is a fine looking meal! Catfish and Tilapia are my favorites since they do such a good job of picking up the flavors of the marinade or spices...without that fishy taste. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. "What?? Catfish marinated in wine"?? That's what my Aunt Ruth would say. The same aunt that said corn wasn't worth eating unless you set the pot to boil before picking the ears. As for us, it sounds delicious!!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  11. Nice rub for your catfish, Pam. The dish turned out beautifully. We nearly bought some yesterday, ended up with yellowtail.

  14. About 10 years ago, we had a local restaurant that specialized in catfish with a peppery sauce that we loved. We were so sad when it closed. This marinade sounds like it could be a really good substitute! Everything tastes better with wine :)

  15. Hi Pam, we eat a lot of fish in the summer and this marinade sounds perfect. Do you think the marinade would be good with tuna?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Cheri! Yes, I think it would be good with tuna. It's a light taste, maybe a little spicy and should be fine with it. Hope you try it and like it! Have a great week!
