So strange that catfish is very cheap here but I can't remember when was the last time I tasted it.

You have made a lovely dish from the fish and the pics say its all. Have fun in NY and we will catch up when you are back.
What a beautiful way of serving catfish, Ridwan! Would love to try this the next time my hubby catches some catfish!
