1/3 Photos of Spicy Grilled Fish
Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:
This is a really tasty, economical and different way to enjoy fish! Lots of flavor from the marinade and easy clean up! Winners in my book. I am sure this would work very well on any firm, mild fish. When I made this I was a little crunched in the time department so I only got to marinade it for 1 hour and it was delicious. Plan ahead! This is best marinated for at least an hour but no more than 2 hours. In a pinch, just let it marinate while the grill is heating.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 24 ounces catfish fillets or 24 ounces other mild fish
- 1/4 cup lemon juice

- 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped, about 1 Tbsp
- 3 green onions, chopped, green and white parts
- 1 teaspoon onion powder

- 1Combine lemon juice, soy sauce, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic, green onions, minced onion, paprika and cayenne pepper and stir to mix well.
- 2Place fish in a zipper seal bag and pour liquid mixture over it. Seal and marinate in the refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hours.
- 3Oil grill grate or fish basket really well and preheat grill to medium high. Grill fish for 4 minutes on each side. Flip the fish only once and brush with reserved marinade when flipped.
- 4NOTE: Fish is completely cooked when the color turns from translucent to opaque (white) or has reached a 150 degree F internal temperature. Resist the temptation to over-cook fish until it "flakes," which indicates the fish is becoming dry.
