Breaded Catfish in spicy ginger sauce

Catfish as food/wikipedia

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways; in Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is typically crumbed with cornmeal and fried.[20]




In Indonesia catfish are usually served grilled in street stalls called warung and eaten with vegetables and soy sauce; the dish is calledPecel Lele. Catfish can also be eaten with chili sambal as Lele Penyet (minced catfish). (Lele is the Indonesian word for catfish)
In Malaysia catfish, called "Ikan Keli", is fried with spices or grilled and eaten with tamarind and Thai chillies gravy and also is often eaten with steamed rice. In the Indian states of West BengalAssam and Bangladesh Catfish (locally known as Magur) is eaten as a favored delicacy during the monsoons. Catfish, locally known as thedu or etta in Malayalam, is very famous in Indian State, kerala. It is also believed that catfish meat helps in blood purification. Catfish curry is consumed in these parts to bring up faster recovery to patients suffering from fever or other ailments.
Catfish is high in Vitamin D.[21] Farm-raised catfish contains low levels of omega-3 fatty acids and a much higher proportion of omega-6 fatty acids.[22]

I love ginger sauce but never had it with catfish! Probably because I am European and thus am used to preparing it in a different way. ;) Sounds great!

Cheers,

Looks crispy and nice with the cherry tomatoes. I seldom try catfish but its really cheap over here at Malaysia with the live ones jumping inside the big plastic container.
