Back in the bad old days when I was working and the local Schwagmans Supermarket had catfish on sale ($2.99/lb and it was FRESH!!), I would cook it on the grill. I would turn on the grill (gas) before I unlocked the door. I could get the meal on the table in 35-45 minutes. Oriental Grilled Catfish 1-1½ pounds of catfish filets (or any other thin white fleshed fish)3-5 tablespoons soy sauce (Kikkoman preferred, low sodium is ok.)1-2 tablespoons dry sherry }1-2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger } optionalPeanut oil and Pam type spray oilGrate ginger and mix with sherry and soy sauce. Place fish in glass baking dish and add soy mixture. Roll fish around in marinade and allow to stand at room temperature 15-20 minutes, turning every 5-10 minutes. While fish is marinating, heat up gas grill (or charcoal, which is even better). Put pot of rice on to cook.Spray a hamburger grilling basket with Pam. Remove fish from marinade and allow to drip off. Using your hands, rub about 1-1½ teaspoon of oil (I use peanut) on each filet and lay on hamburger basket with the thicker side toward the hinge (away from the handle). Close the basket and grill on high temperature 5-7 minutes per side (I have a block of wood that I use to prop the cover of the gas grill open slightly. A foot long section of 2X4 would work nicely). Serve with rice (Basmati or Jasmine) using the reserved marinade on the rice and salad.NOTES: If I'm in a major hurry and/or I don't have the ginger, I use just the soy sauce. You could also cook it under the broiler if you don't have/want to use a grill.C.J.V.
