Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray the rack of a broiler pan with nonstick spray; preheat broiler.
  2. Put the catfish on the prepared rack. Lightly spray the fish with nonstick spray and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Broil the fish 5 inches from the heat just until opaque in the center, about 8 minutes. (Tip: To check if the fish is cooked properly, slit the thickest part of fish fillets with a thin-bladed knife. Peek inside; the flesh should be opaque and should flake easily.).
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the lemon zest and juice, orange juice, capers, oil, oregano, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Divide the cucumbers among 4 plates. Top each serving with 1 fillet; drizzle evenly with the dressing.

Amazingly good! Made for Aussie November swap 2012. The delicate flavours were a good match for a delicate fish, I used Vietnamese catfish. Could maybe be used to cook in a foil packet with the sauce?? Unfortunately I accidentally deleted the photo but it looked nice. Cheers!

This was a very delicious and healthy dinner. I couldn't find Catfish in our area and my fishmonger suggested to try the recipe with Monkfish, so I did and it worked quite nicely. This is a very yummy summer dish.. Thanks so much for posting the recipe Crafty Lady 13
