Thai Spicy Catfish, 'Pad Ped Pladuk'
Buy ingredients for this recipe!
Note the oil for cooking should be *HOT*. In view of this it is a good idea to cook this in a skillet with a lid.
1 lb catfish, cut into "steaks" about 1 inch thick
You can if you wish add a few sliced Thai chile peppers.
Combine the sauce ingredients.
In a wok get enough oil to shallow fry the fish smoking hot. Add the fish and stir until thoroughly coated with oil, then add the prepared sauce (carefull as it may splash). Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes, ensuring the fish doesn't stick to the pan and the pieces are all thoroughly sauced.
Final caution: this cooks quite quickly--don't over cook it or the fish will become hard. It is cooked when you can pry the flesh from the central bone stem of the steak using the tip of a table knife without undue effort.
