Jerk-Spiced Catfish

Lean and nutritious, Jerk-Spiced Catfish is the perfect catch for dinner when served with a refreshing tropical salad. There’s a long list of reasons why catfish is a smart choice for dinner. It’s inexpensive and available year-round. It’s high in protein, B vitamins, and potassium, and it’s naturally low in sodium. In terms of sustainability, farm-raised catfish is one of the best choices for fish. When it comes to flavor, catfish’s mild taste can handle plenty of spice, which is why a strong seasoning, like jerk, pairs so well with it. To balance the heat, serve jerk with sweet flavors, like pineapple. Grilling the fruit briefly before tossing it into an oil-free Jamaican Salad not only makes for a light meal, but intensifies the sweetness.

Ingredients

GRILL:

Store fresh fish on ice. But make sure as the ice melts, the water can drain so it doesn’t pool around the fish, waterlogging it.

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grates with oil.

Sprinkle both sides of each fillet with Simple Jerk Seasoning. Coat fillets with nonstick spray.

Grill fillets, covered, until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning once, 3–4 minutes per side.

Jerk-Spiced-Catfish-Step1

Massage seasoning evenly into the fillets on both sides so that it sticks to the fish during grilling.

Jerk-Spiced-Catfish-Step2

To keep the fish from sticking to the grill, give it a hefty dose of nonstick spray after coating with seasoning.
