Butterflied Catfish

A non-traditional way of cooking catfish. I mean the usual way of cooking catfish is by grilling or roasting. This recipe I have here is frying catfish fillet and served with mustard vinaigrette with a mixture of shrimp paste, calamansi juice, vinegar, mustard leaves seasoned with sugar, salt and pepper. This is a must try specially if you can’t think of way cooking the catfish.
