There are many recipes available that provide excellent ways to cook catfish.

Many people will agree that catfish is one of the best tasting fish around. When prepared correctly it can be an irresistible meal that is also good for you.
Anyone that has never tried catfish before don't know what they are missing. The best part is that cooking catfish is really easy and fast.

Baking, grilling and frying are the three main ways to cook catfish. Either method is great depending on how you like your fish cooked. Below you will find a few common catfish recipes your family will love.

Grilled Catfish

Grilling catfish is one of the simplest methods of cooking them. Just start your grill up and when it's ready, place your catfish filets on the cooking rack. It is a good idea to spray the racks with non-stick cooking oil first. Cook the filets until they are done on one side and then turn over and cook the other side. It normally takes about five minutes on each side.

The secret to having great tasting grilled catfish is the way you prepare the filets before they are placed on the grill. One recipe calls for mixing cooking oil, ginger and soy sauce in a bowl. Place the catfish filets in a pan or dish single file and pour the mixture into the dish until both sides are covered, then marinate the filets for about twenty minutes. Now the filets are ready to be placed on the grill.

Another mixture calls for mixing together 1/2cup of olive oil, lemon juice, one stick of butter and one clove of finely chopped garlic. Once the mixture is prepared, baste the fillets and grill.

Baked Catfish

One of the most popular recipes for baking catfish is the lemon catfish recipe. It is very simple to make. Start by combining two tablespoons of melted butter and two tablespoons of lemon juice together in a bowl and set aside. Next, place seasoned salt, dill weed and lemon pepper seasoning in a bowl. You may need to experiment a little to get a combination of the right amount of these ingredients that suits your individual taste.

Next, add in about a forth a cup of dry bread crumbs and mix together thoroughly. Now what you need to do is dip each one of the catfish filets one at a time into the liquid mixture. Then dip them into the bread crumb mixture and place in an un-greased baking pan single file. Pour the remaining liquid mixture over the filets and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until done.
