  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 cup Chardonnay wine
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 pound U.S. farm-raised catfish fillets


Prepare a grill or preheat the broiler.

Mix olive oil, lime juice, wine, mustard, chili powder, pepper, cilantro and salt in a medium bowl. Transfer half of the marinade mixture to another bowl and reserve for basting catfish. Add catfish to the first bowl; marinate for 15 minutes.

Drain fillets and discard marinade. Place fillets on an oiled grill rack or broiler pan rack. Grill or broil 4 inches from the heat source, basting with reserved marinade, for about three minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Serving Size: Serves 4
