Hi everybody and welcome to another episode of Great Cove Adventure Films. Today I’m going to give you a video demonstration of the method I use to grill catfish over the fire. For a long time my favorite way to enjoy catfish was battered and deep-fried, but once I tried grilling catfish over the fire, that quickly became my favorite way to enjoy eating my favorite species of fish. There’s obviously many different recipes and variations on how to grill catfish, As the old saying goes, “there’s more than one way to skin a cat”. So if you have some suggestions, feel free to post comments and videos in response to this one. I’d love to get some more ideas and methods to try. Before I grill catfish I have the practice of soaking the fillets over night in salt-water and lemon juice to tame down the fishy taste a little. I also cut the fillets into smaller chunks so they are a little easier to work with during the grilling process. Before you put the fish on the grill it is also essential that you coat the pieces of fish with oil, so they don’t stick to the grill. You can brush the oil on like I’m doing here, or you can just put the fillets and some oil together in a bowl and just toss them together until all the pieces are coated. Here’s also where I take the opportunity to sprinkle on some seasonings. I prefer garlic salt, union powder, and Old Bay, but you can try all sorts of things here. And you can apply the seasonings before you put the fish on the grill or you can just sprinkle them on after the fish is over the fire. Once the fish are on the grill you want to give them about 10 or 15 minutes a side; that depends on how hot your fire is. It doesn’t hurt to brush them with oil again before you turn them to be sure they don’t stick, and the fish is done when it begins to flake easily with a fork. If it’s dried out its probably been on the fire too long, and if it’s rubbery it probably needs a little more grillin’.
