Like the creator of this recipe, I also found some cheap frozen catfish nuggets. Was having trouble finding suggestions other than breading and frying. (Not that I have anything against breading and frying:) The only variation I made from the recipe I made was that I let the nuggets marinate in the prescribed sauce for at least an hour. Then (because I had no realistic access to a grill of any kind)---no, that's a lie...because I was cold and lazy and didn't want to BBQ after working all day in 50° weather...I pan fried my marinaded nuggets with a bit of oil over high heat until they flaked into perfection. They were served over a green salad with pepper-jack cheese and chipotle dressing. Thank you for basically make a $0.99/lb. fish into something I'd love to make again and again!

3KillerBs the catfish skewers were really goooooood! The spice from the hot sauce and the tart from the lemon were an interesting flavor. I did add some minced garlic and also let the nuggets marinade for 10 minutes in some of the sauce. This defintely was a nice change from frying them. We will most defintely have these again!

If you like fishkabobs ;-) you are going to love these! I made a major change to this recipe, but I don't think it's enough to affect the review. I didn't use catfish. Yes, I know, it's a catfish recipe. How can anyone change the main ingredient of a recipe and still have the nerve to review it? Well.... I don't eat catfish. I keep kosher and catfish is not a kosher fish. With 3KillerBs permission I substituted Nile perch, and aside from that didn't change another ingredient. Now, I don't know what catfish tastes like, but with the perch this is yummy stuff! I actually made up the sauce in a large bowl and let the fish nuggets marinate in them for about ten minutes before threading them on to skewers. I don't have a grilling basket, and also grilled these in the oven. I lined the oven tray with parchment paper and didn't have a problem at all, turning the kabobs half way through. I served these with grilled vegetables, which also could probably benefit from the sauce. This is definitely going into our dinner rotation, thanks!
