The reason I’m posting a part 2 of the Catfish Fillets In Creamy Coconut Milk Sauce (Ginataang Hito) dish is because my husband specifically got this catfish for me to do whatever. Compare to the size(huge) of the other fish he caught last night, he could’ve easily thrown this one back into the water. He kept it instead coz he thought I’d be able to do something with it for my lunch consumption. Then he gutted it for me. He didn’t take the head off or skinned it either coz he figured I’d prefer the fish to have a head and the skin. He was right.
So for lunch today, I cooked the whole catfish(cut in half) in coconut milk, with green beans and a bit more red pepper flakes than I intended to (click for the recipe). To my friends JMom, Shalimar, and Iska, YES, I ate this with rice.
