Yummy and Easy!!!! Would be great with Jasmine Rice. I added fresh grated ginger and about 1 Tablespoon brown sugar.

This was so bland and oily, even after adding cayenne and black pepper. Sorry, didn't care for it. If you try it, I would definitely try adding jalapenos or something. I didn't, because of the kids. Also, maybe cutting back on the coconut milk and using half flavorful broth instead to cut back the oiliness? The sauce was somewhat good on the rice. . .

I loved it! Of course I had to add some additional seasonings (garlic, cayenne pepper and lemon pepper) but it was good... also added some cilantro and squeezed some lemon as well..yummm!!!

Another 5 stars because my family really enjoyed how the catfish was cooked in this recipe. The only change I made was instead of using cooking oil I used butter. Just a personnel preference over cooking oil for this recipe. Not having used coconut milk for much cooking this was a delightfully light, aromatic and delicious fish recipe. I paired with a Trader Joe's Harvest Grains and frozen peas. Yum! This one is in the recipe box

Took all the advice: added jalapenos, garlic, peppers and ginger. But the coconut milk made all the difference. Served over rice noodles. We really enjoyed this!

This recipe is awesome. I added minced ginger and seeded & finely chopped jalepeno peppers. When served, added some avocado slices to the plate and it was fantastic. This is so much like one of my favorite Thai dishes I used to order. Fast and easy, too!

Oh my this was yummy... I was looking for something different and love catfish but have only ever had it fried. I made this one but made it spicy how I like by adding to jalapenos. Seeds, ribs, and all. It was even great the next day... I had ran out of rice and used drained ramen noodles ..... that was even better than with the rice.
