Catfish is a perfect fish to grill because of its firm texture and you won't lose the fish fillets in the grill grates! Catfish is difficult to overcook and has a versatile, mild flavor. It tastes great with a myriad of seasonings.

Gingered Orange Catfish and Supersweet Corn


1Preheat grill or broiler. In small bowl combine orange juice, oil, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper. Reserve 1 tablespoon of mixture for Orange Sauce; brush all sides of corn and catfish fillets with remaining mixture.

2On oiled rack or broiler pan, grill fillets and corn, 4 inches from heat source, until catfish is opaque in center and corn is lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes, turning corn occasionally.

3Serve catfish drizzled with Orange Sauce. Garnish with broiled orange wedges and mixed greens, if desired.

*For Orange Sauce: In small saucepan combine 3/4 cup orange juice, 1 teaspoon cornstarch and reserved 1 tablespoon orange-ginger mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring until thickened, about 5 minutes.
