How to make Hot & Spicy Catfish Sauté


  • 1. Coat the fish cube generously with the spice rub. Use your hand to rub it in thoroughly but gently, as the flesh of the fish will be very delicate when raw. Let it marinate for 1/2 hour.
  • 2. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables.
  • 3. In a non-stick pan, heat 3 tbsp of oil till smoking hot. Add the fish cubes, and saute on high heat for about 3-4 min, till the fishes develop a crispy coating. Remove and set aside.
  • 4. Add the onions and salt to the oil. You should not need any extra oil, however if you do, then add 1 more tbsp before adding the onions. Saute till they are browned on the edges.
  • 5. Add all the dry spices, and 1/2 cup of water so the spices will not burn. Saute till the water evaporates.
  • 6. Add the tomatoes and saute for 3-4 min, return the fish cubes to the pan and lower the heat to med.
  • 7. Keep sauteing till the juices released from the tomatoes have evaporated, and the onions and tomatoes stick to the fish. Turn the heat off. Add the green chilies, stir to combine.
  • 8. Serve on a bed of flavoured or plain white rice .
