  1. Pour the juice of 5 lemons into a glass bowl; whisk in the sea salt and garlic. Add the catfish fillets, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 1 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler for 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and set the oven rack to the lowest position.
  3. Remove the catfish fillets from the marinade, and shake off excess; discard the remaining marinade. Place the fillets on a broiling pan; sprinkle with the lemon pepper seasoning, garlic and herb seasoning, and Creole seasoning. Arrange the lemon slices over the fillets.
  4. Broil in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes. You may wish to turn the broiler on fully for the last few minutes if you like the edges of the fish blackened. Sprinkle the fillets with shredded carrot and parsley to garnish. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.

This is a good recipe for lemon pepper catfish. I suggest using thin fillets and broiling them until slightly blackened. I marinated for about an hour and will increase to two hours for a slig...

Way, WAY over seasoned. The flavor was good (kind of an "everything but the kitchen sink" approach when it comes to seasoning...) but wow. Just way too seasoning for that amount of fish. The ...

Definately over seasoned so I omitted a lot and just used lemon juice, sea salt, garlic, pepper, & TARRAGON. Marinated for an hour and a half and grilled on the BBQ with a mat. The flavor was aw...

Reduce salt and use a non-garlic salt garlic-herb powder. Otherwise good and will make again.

I duno, didn't really care for this maybe it was the catfish I used, or not even marinade time. May try it again in the future but no one in my family liked it.

It was beyond over-seasoned.

but the marinate was good enough with simple fresh garlic, thyme, cayenne and paprika was all it needed and garnished with freshly chopped green onions. All the other seasoning seemed overpoweri...
