We enjoyed this grilled catfish. I had 6 large thick fillets and there was plenty of basting sauce. Overall, the fish had a zesty flavor which we all liked. A keeper. Thanks.

We are big fish-eaters. This is a great catfish recipe. I thought it was very well seasoned but we basted the heck out of those catfish so maybe that is why. Grilling time for us was about 4 minutes per side. Kids and adults gave it their approval. Thanks for another great recipe.

I am new to the delightful taste of catfish. My husband and I made this the other night and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The Italian dressing made a terrific marinade and the basting sauce was yummy. We saved some to dip the fillets in after they were cooked. Delicious. Thanks Nurse Di.
