"Grilling is my family's favorite way to fix meals," writes Rhonda Dietz from Garden City Kansas. "Because my husband savors well-prepared meals, this recipe quickly became one of his most requested."

    The texture of the fish was great but we found it too salty - next time I will use fine breadcrumbs instead of saltines or perhaps garlic powder and celery seed rather than garlic salt and celery salt.

    I have made this recipe several times. It is a favorite of my family. Normally, catfish taste like eating sand. This recipe is refreshing and a keeper!
