Catfish Hors D’oeurves Recipe


We’ve made this recipe through the years with just about every kind of fish, and they’ve all tasted wonderful. A fishing friend gave this recipe to my wife when we first married, and everyone finds it delicious.


  • 20 to 30 fillets of catfish (any white fish will work) in approximately 2-inch by 2-inch pieces
  • Soy-based steak sauce
  • Salt
  • Margarine
  • Lemon juice
  • Strips of bacon


Place the fillets on a platter. Lightly salt, and allow to sit for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle each piece of catfish with steak sauce. Apply a small pat of butter to each fillet. Squeeze freshly-cut lemon over fillets, and cover fillets with slices of bacon. Cook in a smoker or an oven at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until the bacon is done.
