Lemon-Chili Catfish

Citrus and spice is a powerful combination with the tender texture of fresh catfish. The heat is cut perfectly by the mild sweetness of asparagus. Serve with a side of brown rice for a complete meal.


  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. catfish fillets
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 lbs. asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1" pieces and steamed


  1. Combine chili powder, garlic and salt on a plate. Dredge fillets in the spice mixture to coat. Reserve the remaining spice mixture.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the fish and cook until just opaque in the center, turning after 3-4 minutes.
  3. Plate the fish. Add lemon juice, reserved spices and asparagus to the pan until asparagus is warmed and coated.
