Cedar Planked Harissa Spiced Catfish

Some bold flavors, and Cedar wood, work tremendously well with this classic American Fish.

Serves – 4
Total time – 30 minutes
Chef's Tip – If you can’t find harissa powder, you can use the paste instead - just omit the olive oil. If you can’t find Harissa at all, any kind of spicy ground chili will work just fine.
  • Cedar Grilling Plank
  • 1.5 lb Catfish Filets, skin and bones removed
  • Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Harissa Powder
  • 1 Lemon, zested
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  1. Preheat a grill or oven to 425°F and soak the plank in hot water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Rinse the catfish and pat dry. Rub with a small amount of olive oil.
  3. Season the fish all over with Harissa.
  4. Combine the lemon zest, garlic, parsley, and salt. Evenly distribute the mixture over the top of each filet.
  5. Set the catfish filets on the grilling planks and place them on the grill or in the oven.
  6. Cook the fish for 15 minutes or until cooked through and flakey.
  7. Serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!
