Catfish with grilled chicken shrimp salad 🥗


  • 2 catfish fillets
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 12 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the Cajun seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Season both sides of the catfish fillets, chicken breasts, and shrimp with the spice mixture.
  3. Drizzle the olive oil over the catfish, chicken, and shrimp, and rub it all over to evenly coat.
  4. Place the catfish, chicken, and shrimp on the preheated grill. Cook the catfish for about 4-5 minutes per side, until it flakes easily with a fork. Grill the chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side, until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Grill the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes per side, until they turn pink and opaque.
  5. Once cooked, remove the catfish, chicken, and shrimp from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Slice the chicken into thin strips.
  6. In a large bowl, combine the salad greens, cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, and chopped parsley.
  7. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.
  8. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.
  9. Divide the salad mixture onto plates or bowls. Top each portion with slices of grilled chicken, catfish fillet, and shrimp.
  10. Serve the Catfish with Grilled Chicken and Shrimp Salad with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the fish and seafood.
