Spicy Deviled Whiting

Doug DuCap
So simple and so good -- and just the thing when you need to give your mouth a wake-up call! But don't be afraid: This dish may look fiery, but it's just well-spiced and flavorful, not overly hot. You can crank up the heat with more cayenne or by adding hot pepper sauce to the mayonnaise.

This recipe would work equally well with catfish, tilapia, or swai.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 Servings


  • 1-1/2 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp Old Bay or other seafood seasoning
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 large whiting fillets (7-8 oz) or equivalent


Combine all the dry seasonings in one bowl, and mix together the mayo and Worcestershire in another.

Dry the fillets well. Brush the fillets on one side with the mayo mixture, then coat them generously with the seasoning mixture. Turn the fillets over and repeat on the other side.

Broil under low heat 7-10 minutes until fish just flakes at the thickest part. Watch the fillets carefully so that the seasonings brown but don't burn.
