Hail, Caesar! Grilled Catfish


  • 4 U. S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)

  • 3 tablespoons dried basil

  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano

  • 3 tablespoons garlic salt

  • 3 tablespoons lemon pepper

  • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (such as Kraft)

  • olive oil spray


  1. Prepare “Hail Ceasar” Rub by mixing spices and Parmesan cheese in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store the blend in a dark cupboard, away from heat, and it will keep for two to three months.

  2. Preheat grill to high heat

  3. Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of the blend on a lightly oiled fillet. Grill or broil over high heat for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes per side, or until the fish begins to flake when tested with a fork in the thickest part.
