"Tasty grilled fish fillet with a tantalizing color and zesty, zingy taste. I love to experiment with grilling fish and marinades, and this is one I've recently come up with. Recipe also works well with trout; haven't tried it with other types of fish, though. If cooking more than one fish, grill each in separate foil to preserve flavor."

1 (4 ounce) fillet
Catalina salad dressing
chile-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®)
ground black pepper
crushed red pepper flakes
ground white pepper
This is very good. Does have a little heat but not too much. Did not have the chili-garlic sauce. I used garlic and chili powder and threw in some parm chese along with the other dry spices, left out the mustard, and made it a dry rub that I sprinkeled on after rolling in the catalina dressing.
My husband and I didn't like this at all.
To begin with we love Swai fish fillets. When following a recipe, I always try my best to follow the directions exactly before commenting on a dish on this website. However, with this dish we had to make our own Catalina dressing as we didn't have any on hand. I don't like white pepper so I left that out as well. The fish turned out perfectly. It took 12 minutes to cook them and the sauce was great. We have never had Swai cooked like that so it was a nice change. I made some refried rice to go with the fish and together it was as good as any oriental restaurant has to offer. The only thing I can add is the next time we make this dish together it will include the normal Catalina dressing and not our own concoction. Definitely a keeper!
First off this was awesome! Now my grill is out of order so I thought I can adapt this to the oven. Also I didn't have Catalina dressing, but I did have Dorothy Lynch which I think is similar. So I used just a shade less than 1/2 C of Dorothy Lynch instead of Catalina. I didn't have white pepper so I put in just 1/4 tsp of black pepper total, for fear that it might be too much. Other than that I kept the ingredients the same. I smeared the sauce on the fillets and then baked them uncovered in a baking dish for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. I cooked 2 fillets, but the recipe made enough for 3 or 4. It is a little spicy but I like spice, and I love Sriracha so it worked for me. I was worried that the 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder would be too much, but it was perfect. I think next time I might cut the temp back to 400 or cover the dish because some of the sauce ran off the fillet into the dish and did start to burn a little. Thanks for submitting the recipe.
I eliminated then Catalina dressing and cooked it in the oven instead of a grill. It turned out really good, my girlfriend and I both loved it. Nice spicy flavor, but not too much.
This was a very good recipe. The fish was not the typical flavor and that was good. We have made this twice. The second time we subbed out the mustard for Curry Powder and it gave the fish a really interesting zing.
