Grilled Catfish In Tamari-Coriander Marinade

Courses: Main Course
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 tablespoons 30mlTamari sauce - plus
1 teaspoon 5mlTamari sauce
2 tablespoons 30mlFreshly-squeezed lemon juice - plus
1 teaspoon 5mlFreshly-squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlGarlic powder
1 1/4 teaspoons 6.3mlGround coriander seed
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlDried orange peel - (generous tspn)
4 1/2 tablespoons 67mlOlive oil
  Salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black or white pepper - to taste
4   Catfish fillets, 3/4" to 1" thick - - (7 to 8 oz ea)

Recipe Instructions

Start a hot fire in the grill or preheat the oven broiler.

Mix the tamari sauce, lemon juice, garlic, coriander, and orange peel in a medium-size bowl. Gradually whisk in the olive oil. Use the marinade right away or refrigerate it for up to 3 weeks.

Season the catfish fillets with the salt and pepper and marinate them in about three quarters of tamari marinade for 30 to 45 minutes, if there is time. Otherwise brush them with the marinade before and during grilling.

Place the catfish fillets, round-side down, on the preheated rack. (I like to brush the top of the grate with vegetable oil just before grilling to help prevent sticking.) Grill them or broil round-side up, for 5 to 6 minutes, until they've browned, and turn them over with a metal spatula. Grill or broil the second side for another 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the intensity of the heat, the fillets should be done at this point. To check, slightly separate the flesh in the center of one fillet with your metal spatula -- it should be white and opaque throughout.

Place the catfish fillets on warm dinner plates, drizzle over more of the tamari coriander marinade, and serve right away.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
