Lime Broiled Catfish

You didn’t think the catfish recipes were over did you? This week Keith “Catfish” Sutton is serving up a Lime Broiled Catfish.

Here’s another delicious, time-saving recipe that makes the most of fresh, American farm-raised catfish fillets. If you don’t have limes available, lemons can be substituted.

This picture shows a beautifully seasoned, lime broiled catfish, accented by limes on an intricately designed dish.


  • 2 pounds farm-raised catfish fillets
  • 1 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 2 limes
  • Lemon-pepper spice
  • Chopped fresh chives for garnish


  1. Pour the hot melted butter in a large bowl, and dip each fish fillet. Transfer the fish to a rectangular pan lined with non-stick aluminum foil. Squeeze one half lime over each piece of fish, and season to taste with lemon-pepper spice.
  2. Place under a preheated broiler and cook 6 inches from the flame for 3 to 4 minutes or until the thickest part of each fillet flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with chives if desired, and serve immediately while the fish is still piping hot.
