    Pla Duk Yang or BBQ Catfish

    Pla Duk Yang or BBQ Catfish, personally I don't like catfish, many people swear it's great, here in Thailand it is about the cheapest fish money can buy, to me it just tastes of mud, you can go to one of the many fishing ponds and catch and cook your own, the Thai markets all sell catfish ready to put on the BBQ, or like these ones already cooked and ready to be eaten, it's cheap nutritious food, but not something I shall be ordering in the near future.





    Stir-Fried Catfish in Red Curry, 'Pladuk Pad Ped'


    Ingredients Can Be Bought Online Here


    1 catfish, approximately 1 lb
    1/2 cup thai basil leaves (only leaves, no stems)
    2 mild (such as jalapeno) fresh chile pepper shredded
    1 tbsp fresh ginger, shredded
    1/4 cup young green peppercorns
    2 fresh kaffir lime leaves shredded
    2 tbsp red curry paste
    1 tsp palm sugar
    1-2 tbsp fish sauce
    3 tbsp water
    3 tbsp vegetable oil

    Method

    Wash and clean fish and slice it vertically to create a few fish steaks approx 1" thick. Pat dry. Heat vegetable oil in wok and add red curry paste. Fry until aromatic. Add fish and stir until finished, then add water and stir well. Adjust taste by adding palm sugar, fish sauce, stir well, then add young green pepper, basil, chile pepper, ginger and lime leaves. Stir well, remove from heat. Garnish with a bit more shredded lime leaves and basil. When serving, place the peppercorns prominently on top.

    I wouldn't mind betting that you, and all the rest of us, eat a whole lot more catfish than anyone realises!
    The incredibly popular Vietnamese River Cobbler, Basa, Cream Dory, Swai, Whitefish, Panga, Grey Sole....... that very inexpensive lovely and very versatile flaky white meat? All one and the same........
    Pangasius....... catfish!
