Sweet and Spicy Peanut Glazed Catfish


  • 4 6-oz. U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked rice

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F or grill to medium. Season both sides of fillets with salt and pepper, if desired.

In a small bowl, combine marmalade, peanut butter, paprika, garlic, salt, and black and red peppers; stir in peanuts.

Spread fillets with peanut mixture, dividing evenly. Place fillets on greased baking pan or greased grill rack. Cook until fish is opaque in center, 8 to 10 minutes, depending on size.

Serve with rice tossed with orange zest and parsley and orange segments, if desired.
