  • Serves 4

Preparation Items:

  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Fresh parsley (chopped, for garnish)

Preparation Method:

  • Seasoning the Catfish: In a small bowl, mix together the Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and salt. Brush each catfish fillet with olive oil, then rub the seasoning mix over both sides of the fillets.
  • Preheating the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Ensure the grill grates are clean and lightly oil them to prevent sticking.
  • Grilling the Catfish: Place the seasoned catfish fillets on the grill. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
  • Serving: Remove the catfish from the grill and place on a serving platter. Squeeze lemon wedges over the fillets and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

Drink Pairing:

  • A light and crisp lager or a lemon-infused iced tea pairs wonderfully with the spicy flavors of the Cajun-seasoned catfish. The clean, refreshing taste helps to balance the heat and spices, making for a pleasant dining experience.
