    Hi again, Ms. Connie! This is just another WOW! Just reading your description of your procedure— I imagined, “a party” could be going on inside your mouth as you take each bite of this good recipe! I can imagine the excellent flavors and textures… really one good recipe. ;)

    Ah, yes. The prep time is kinda long but all worth it. It was a superb dinner hehehe No dieting allowed.

    Did you debone the catfish yourself? I’ve done this twice with mixed results. My first attempt was better. I guess my mistake was not deep frying the fish. Sarap diba! First time i tried that salad, i wanted to do it also!

      The fish wasn’t deboned while raw but after grilling. So, it was just like eating grilled catfish except that the flesh went onto a plate rather than the mouth. hehehe

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ve always wanted to do this dish,but never got around to doing it,so now you have made it easier for your readers including myself to prepare this gorgeous dish.I was just wondering,if I can’t find catfish what would you recommend as an alternative?

    • Connie says:

      lin, I don’t know of any fish that tastes like catfish so I don’t know if the substitution will yield good results. But you can always experiment. I’d suggest sticking with oily fish though.

    Hello Connie,
    I have tasted a similar catfish salad at Soi Thai Restaurant, tho it was not shredded but just fried and salad was arranged covering the body of the fish. I must say that you make it really easy for everybody to do a dish that looks difficult to do. Whenever i need an Asian dish, i always check your site and also love your tips! Thanks for sharing!

    There is a Pinoy dish sort of like this at Bangus Restaurant in Greenhills. It’s one of my mom’s favorites whenever she is there. Theirs uses bangus, of course. :)
