    Barbecued Catfish

    6 catfish, 1 lb. each

    1/2 c. oil (vegetable)

    Clean, skin, and fillet fish. Combine remaining ingredients. Baste fish with sauce. Place fish in a well-greased, hinged fish basket. Place on grill about 3 to 4 inches from coals. Cook 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily, brushing frequently with the sauce.


    Grilled Sea Bass In Grape Leaves

    8 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    3 tbsp. lemon juice
    1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
    2 tbsp. fresh oregano, chopped
    Salt, to taste
    Black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
    4 (8 oz. each) sea bass fillets
    4 anchovy fillets, minced
    3 tbsp. butter, softened
    Grape leaves, as needed

    Combine 4 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Add fillets, and marinate 40 minutes, turning once. In a food processor, blend anchovies and butter; spread mixture evenly over fillets.
    Wrap fish; arrange 4 grape leaves in a square, overlapping slightly; place fillet on leaves and wrap, tucking the ends under. Repeat with the remaining fillets.
    On an oiled grill, over a hot fire, arrange wrapped fillets. Grill approximately 5 minutes per side, until leaves are browned, fillets are firm, and a skewer inserted into the center of the fish comes out hot to the touch. Remove fish from grill; unwrap fillets, and serve atop lentil pilaf, accompanied by spiced eggplant.

    Wasabi-Glazed Whitefish

    2 tbsp. light soy sauce
    1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    1/4 tsp. wasabi powder or
    1 tbsp. prepared horseradish
    4 (4 oz.) fresh skinless whitefish, sea bass, or orange roughy fillets, 1-inch thick
    1 med. zucchini, coarsely shredded (about
    1 1/3 c.)
    1 c. sliced radishes
    1 c. fresh pea pods
    2 tbsp. snipped fresh chives
    3 tbsp. rice vinegar

    Combine soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of the sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the sugar, and the wasabi powder. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of fish with soy mixture.
    Lightly grease the rack of a gas grill. Preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place fish on the grill rack directly over heat, tucking under any thin edges. Cover and grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, gently turning once halfway through grilling.
    Meanwhile, for slaw, in a medium bowl combine the zucchini, radishes, pea pods, and chives. Stir together vinegar, the remaining sesame oil, and the remaining sugar. Drizzle over the zucchini mixture; toss to coat. Serve the fish with slaw. Makes 4 servings.
    NOTE: To cook fish on a charcoal grill, grill fish directly over medium coals for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish just flakes when tested with a fork, gently turning once halfway through grilling. Serve as above.
