Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Preheat the oven's broiler for 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and set the oven rack to the lowest position.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I am only giving this 1 star because of the overpowering lemon taste that the fish had. It literally made my lips pucker. My 11 year old daughter who has a taste for strange foods thought it was just right so I guess if you like fish that tastes like LEMON you might like it. I had 2 1/4 lb. of catfish filets and used the juice of 5 lemons. I did let the fish marinate a full 4 hours but didn't put lemon slices on top. If I make this again I will just squeeze 1 lemon over the fish and let it marinate for 1 hour. Using this method I would predict this would be a 4 or 5 star recipe. I didn't have lemon pepper or Creole seasoning so I used regular pepper Mrs. Dash garlic salt paprika parsley and a little red pepper. I did have to broil it for more like 30 minutes but my filets were pretty thick. Read More

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 slightly stronger lemon flavor. Read More

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 cooking method was great and the fish turned out well. Using about 1/3 of the amount of seasoning called for would greatly improve this recipe. Also I left out the lemon peel and lemon slices and between the lemon pepper and lemon juice this was MORE than lemony enough- I'd recommend leaving them out as I did. Read More

Very strong lemon flavor. In my opinion it does not need the lemon juice marination. Read More

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. Read More

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 awesome. Read More
