"Tasty grilled fish fillet with a tantalizing color and zesty, zingy taste. I love to experiment with grilling fish and marinades, and this is one I've recently come up with. Recipe also works well with trout; haven't tried it with other types of fish, though. If cooking more than one fish, grill each in separate foil to preserve flavor."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Place a large piece of aluminum foil on a work surface; pinch edges together forming a boat-like shape to contain liquids. Pour Catalina dressing in the middle of the aluminum foil. Place fish fillet in the dressing, turning to coat fish in dressing completely.
  3. Mix chile-garlic sauce, garlic powder, ground black pepper, sea salt, red pepper flakes, mustard powder, and white pepper together in a small bowl. Coat both sides of fish fillet with spice mixture. Wrap aluminum foil around coated fish fillet and dressing, sealing the edges together.
  4. Cook fish on the preheated grill until opaque and flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 12 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I typically like my food extremely spicy, so you may want to take it a little easier on the crushed red pepper and Sriracha(R) hot sauce. You can let the fish sit and marinate in the refrigerator overnight (in which case the prep time will be more than 5 minutes), but it also tastes great straight onto the grill.

This is very good. Does have a little heat but not too much. Did not have the chili-garlic sauce. I used garlic and chili powder and threw in some parm chese along with the other dry spices, lef...

My husband and I didn't like this at all.

To begin with we love Swai fish fillets. When following a recipe, I always try my best to follow the directions exactly before commenting on a dish on this website. However, with this dish we ha...

First off this was awesome! Now my grill is out of order so I thought I can adapt this to the oven. Also I didn't have Catalina dressing, but I did have Dorothy Lynch which I think is similar. S...

almost everyone in the house enjoyed this, including my very picky daughter!

This was my first time trying Swai and I am so glad this is the recipe I chose. I was very hesitant because Catalina dressing is a little too sweet for me on a salad but pair it with the other g...

This was a very good recipe. The fish was not the typical flavor and that was good. We have made this twice. The second time we subbed out the mustard for Curry Powder and it gave the fish a rea...

Very good! I've never tried this kind of fish before and I will definitely buy again! I didn't use Catalina dressing, but I did use French. And used only black pepper and not white! Very delicio...

I just made this. (Blue dish) pretty yummy! I guess I just like my spicy too much, so I added more sriracha. Yummy yummy in my tummy.
