here is a great recipe:

saute diced onion in olive oil, lay filets over the onion once slightly caramelized, sprinkle with salt pepper and crushed rosemary (lightly) and some fresh orange zest. add the juice of an orange and cover. poach the fish...done in about 5 minutes, remove cover and reduce liquid. serve over a pilaf of choice and drizzle with the reduced pan juices.

Low in fat and calories, and incredibly tasty.

Yes it can be grilled. Make sure your grill surface is very clean, and will support the fish...Catfish is not as firm textured as Salmon, Shark, Tuna, Sword Fish etc. so it must be handled gently to keep it from breaking apart.
A grill pan works well also as it provides excellent support, and allows you to easily move the fish around on the grill....moving from direct heat to indirect heat, turning the fish etc...A pan spray on the grill pan helps to prevent sticking...as does a light coat of oil on the fish itself...HTH

Asian style, w/ a black bean sauce is good. Couldn't tell you the recipe, but it tastes good. :)

in my opinion, fried is the only way to eat catfish. i usually mix flour, cornmeal more corn meal than flour . littles seasoned salt, pepper. and a tiny dusting of paprika if you like . fry in skillet , with bout three inches oil. don't crowd in pan so they won't steam. a bit of tarter on the side, and a wedge of lemon, so yummy, can't be beat.sorry i forgot. dredge in plain flour, an egg wash and them into flour cornmeal mix. yummy
