Jalapeno & Honey Glazed BBQ Catfish

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish has become one of Canada’s most popular fish. It’s sustainably-raised but it’s also versatile, mild, and easy to cook.


4 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets, 6 to 8 oz (180 to 250 g) each
Juice of 1 lemon
½ tsp (2 mL) sea salt
½ tsp (2 mL) fresh ground black pepper

Jalapeno and Honey Glaze
1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp (30 mL) honey
½ cup of your favourite BBQ sauce


Prepare a grill or preheat the broiler

Put the fresh Catfish fillets in a shallow dish and brush each fillet with lemon juice. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.

Place fillets on an oiled grill rack or broiler pan rack. Grill or broil fillets about 4 inches (10 cm) from heat until fish flakes easily with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes a side.

Mix glaze ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Transfer fillets to serving plates and spoon glaze over top.

Serve with roasted potatoes and coleslaw!
