Ariana,
Thanks! It's nice to know that the recipe works even with filets.

This was totally amazing. I didn't have a whole catfish, so I used fresh catfish filets from the local fish market. It worked just as well and the cooking time was much shorter.

Glad that was easily solved. And glad that you liked the recipe and so did your sister and friend! :)

Hi WC,
I used fresh catfish. Next time I'll definitely add the water. Thanks! :)

P.s. I shared the recipe to my sister and friend. They both loved it!!!

2011-03-28T19:11:46.007-07:00

Hang,
Are you using fresh or frozen fish? Mine are from my dad, so they're frozen. Even though the fish is defrosted before I cook it, maybe more water is retained and then melted when it's cooked? If that's not the case, then I suggest adding water into the pan when you notice it drying out. Add the water near the beginning so it'll have time to thicken into the sauce at the

2011-03-28T16:08:08.726-07:00

Hi WC,

I'm wondering how do you end up with so much marinade at the end? Twice I made this and what's left the marinade just dried onto the pan. Still both times came out yummy but I didn't get to enjoy much of the dripping. I'm confused...........

2010-05-28T15:00:42.022-07:00

Christine,
That's great to hear! Did you tell them you got it from me? :P

Experiment. See if it works? The reason why I cook it on each side is so the fish has time to absorb the marinade. Standing it up at the end is just to crisp it.

2010-04-06T14:43:47.564-07:00

Hi WC,
I made this recipe last week for the first time for my sis and bros-in-law and it was a BIG hit. They kept asking if I made it or it was store bought:) I made 2 of 3.5lbs catfish for 8 people and they were gone quick. I left the fish laying on the side cuz I couldn't "stand it" up. what do you think if I marinate each side 30min first, then put it in the oven in the

2009-11-05T17:56:40.009-08:00

Chloe,
Some Asian supermarkets will also deep-fry the fish for you too. If you're feeling particularly lazy.

2009-11-05T07:47:37.118-08:00

Thanks for the tip!! I went to a Vietnamese supermarket owned by Shun Fat on Beach near the 405 and the man behind the counter gutted the fish for me (after I handed him a piece of paper that I so carefully transcribed from my mom's translation via email). I'll let you know how it goes!! I think I'll follow your recipe minus the hanh because I'm lazy. It was the first time I ever

Chloe,
Ah, well, that's nice to hear. :)

I use scissors to gut fish. So much easier to slit down the side and trim off fins and all that. You can buy fillets. Or buy a fish from an Asian supermarket. Most of them will gut and scale a fish for you.

I'll have to post my instructions for gutting a fish then and once you see how easy it is, you can do it yourself.

2009-11-03T16:20:58.706-08:00

For some reason, whenever I look up Vietnamese recipes, your blog ALWAYS comes up! :)

How do you gut a catfish? I googled it but I didn't really understand my search results and it made me kind of scared. Should I just buy fillets!??! (am looking to make goi cuon, or whatever it's called if there's catfish in it)

Deborah,
I grew up eating fish with heads attached so it's no big deal to me. Perhaps you can get your kids used to it too?

Kalyn,
You can try this with catfish filets. The presentation will be different but it'll still be tasty.

Cheryl,
This dish will make you a catfish convert for sure. :)

2008-05-28T18:17:00.000-07:00

I don't even like catfish, and I"m tempted to try it. I will be back to your site for sure!

Sounds fantastic. I really like catfish, which isn't that common in Utah. I've never had it cooked whole though.

That looks like one incredible catfish! Great post (though my kids would be creeped out by the fish head looking at them!)

WoRC,
I wanted to soak that rice paper and dig in right after I took the photo.

Chuck,
You're always welcome for dinner. :)

Vicki,
Thanks!

Christine,
Peanuts and shallots are awesome. Will keep that in mind for next time.

Tigerfishy,
Hehe. You're my first guest.

Hedgehog,
Yeah, it takes me a while to get around to posting some

2008-05-27T18:47:00.000-07:00

Tasty! The way you arranged the fish...looks like it was swimming in the sauce, hehe. I usually only eat this at Phong Dinh (Garvey and SG) b/c I get lazy when dealing with whole fish.

2008-05-25T22:45:00.000-07:00

Your dish looks awesome. The scallion oil is a great addition. And, how cool is your Dad? He brings you fish he caught from Oregon!

My mom makes something like this - she adds peanuts and fried shallots along with the scallion oil and we wrap it in rice paper with lettuce and herbs. So yummy.

I can't wait to try this too.



Oh, what a delicious looking fishy!
