Grilled Catfish Tacos

I love cooking Mexican inspired food, it’s healthy, quick and simple to make, delicious and perfect for a group. I previously posted a recipe for great Tuna Tacos, today’s recipe has the same sides but just substitute the tuna for catfish (which is cheaper and more sustainable).

  1. Mix the lime zest, cayenne pepper, ground coriander, salt and pepper in a bowl and rub the catfish with the dry rub. Leave for at least 30 mins for the flavours to mix.
