  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ginger in the hot oil until slightly softened and brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add catfish fillets; cook until firm, about 3 minutes per side. Remove fillets from the skillet to a plate and set aside.
  2. Stir fish sauce, soy sauce, and oyster sauce together in the skillet. Add onion and red bell pepper; cook and stir until softened, about 4 minutes. Return catfish fillets to the skillet and spoon sauce and vegetables over the fillets. Continue cooking until the flesh of the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 minutes more. Garnish with green onions to serve.

I really liked it, but my kids did not like it at all. Didn't have oyster sauce so used an extra tablespoon of soy sauce. Didn't make much sauce but enough.

I added maybe 3 teaspoons sugar, a teaspoon of liquid smoke and less ginger but alot of ginger powder with a dash of red chili pepper and it came out superb. Great dish!

I just made this recipe. It turned out very well, loved it. however I don't care for yellow onions so I simply added a few extra green onions.
