I have never reviewed a recipe or even joined but I had to go ahead and commment on this one. This is a great recipe. I made no changes and it was outstanding. I would highly recommmend this one.
This is a good recipe for lemon pepper catfish. I suggest using thin fillets and broiling them until slightly blackened. I marinated for about an hour and will increase to two hours for a slightly stronger lemon flavor.
I am only giving this 1 star because of the overpowering lemon taste that the fish had. It literally made my lips pucker. My 11 year old daughter, who has a taste for strange foods, thought it was just right, so I guess if you like fish that tastes like LEMON, you might like it. I had 2 1/4 lb. of catfish filets and used the juice of 5 lemons. I did let the fish marinate a full 4 hours, but didn't put lemon slices on top. If I make this again, I will just squeeze 1 lemon over the fish and let it marinate for 1 hour. Using this method, I would predict this would be a 4 or 5 star recipe. I didn't have lemon pepper or Creole seasoning so I used regular pepper, Mrs. Dash, garlic salt, paprika, parsley and a little red pepper. I did have to broil it for more like 30 minutes, but my filets were pretty thick.
Way, WAY over seasoned. The flavor was good (kind of an "everything but the kitchen sink" approach when it comes to seasoning...) but wow. Just way too seasoning for that amount of fish. The cooking method was great and the fish turned out well. Using about 1/3 of the amount of seasoning called for would greatly improve this recipe. Also, I left out the lemon peel and lemon slices and between the lemon pepper and lemon juice this was MORE than lemony enough- I'd recommend leaving them out as I did.
