Lime Broiled Catfish Recipe

Lime Broiled Catfish Recipe

To serve a reduced-calorie dish that is ready in about 15 minutes. I came up with this fast simple recipe. I think the lime juice adds a different fresh flavor to the mild taste of the fish. —Nick Nicholson, Clarksdale, Mississippi
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 catfish fillets (6 ounces each)

"So good! Finally something as tasty as frying catfish but healthy. I use olive oil in place of the butter and it's still delicious! Thanks for the recipe."
