Recipe Notes

  • Fish Alternatives: In place of the catfish, use swordfish, salmon, halibut, or tuna steaks, mahimahi, or mackerel fillets, or almost any fish that can be grilled.
  • Wine Recommendation: Once one of the most popular of all Italian whites, Verdicchio is better than ever these days. Sip it with this dish and discover how the wine’s tasty character complements both fish and pungent sauces.
