Directions

  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.

Very good. The fish was moist and tender and cooking the ginger mellowed it out nicely.

Quite a tasty dish! We toned down the ginger for our North American palates, so used only about 1/3 of what they ask. My wife lived in Cambodia for a few years and could take lots of ginger then, but she was happy to tone it down too, since she isn't used to so much any more. I found that I ate a lot more rice with it than I would with other fish dishes, as the dish is quite potent. My wife said that is also typical of how Cambodians eat, very small portions of (extremely flavourful) meat and a LOT of rice with it.

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.
