Reviews for Lemon-Pepper Catfish
"I doubled the recipe for 8 good sized fillets. The combination of everything was perfect. We grilled it straight on the grill no foil. The only thing I might do next time is keep a tiny amount of the butter mixture on the side to give the fish a brush after cooking! Otherwise excellent my kids and husband approved!"
