Temperatures here on the Gulf Coast are moderate in winter, so we enjoy grilling out all year. My husband, Larry, came up with this recipe by experimenting. Our whole family likes the unique taste of this dish.

“I make this meal on a monthly basis,” writes Barbara Keith from Faucett, MIssouri. “The fish is so delicious and flaky, and it’s easy to prepare, too.” If you can’t find catfish, purchase orange roughy or cod instead.
"My family was not big on fish...until I made this dish," Joy McConaghy from Moline, Illinois notes. She stuffs catfish fillets with a delicious mixture of crabmeat, cheese, seasoned bread crumbs and mayonnaise.
Give your fish a southwestern "kick" with Teresa Hubbard's change-of-pace preparation. "My sister doesn't like seafood, so I figured I'd disguise it with a mix of interesting tastes and textures," she explains from Russellville, Alabama. "Everyone was surprised by the slightly crunchy tortilla chip coating."
These golden baked fillets have the delicious crunch of batter-fried catfish without the extra calories or prep time. A dash of lemon juice or salsa complements the mild fish nicely.—Kay Bell, Palestine, Texas
