Grilled Sesame Catfish

Yield 6 servings


  • 6 dressed catfish (about 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper

How to Make It

  1. Rinse fish thoroughly in cold water; pat dry, and set aside.

  2. Combine oil, sesame seeds, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl.

  3. Place fish on a well-greased grill 4 inches from medium coals. Cook 12 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Baste often with sauce. Transfer to a serving platter, and serve immediately.
