i'm not a super fan of catfish. but my wife loves it, so we eat it.
i claypot it for her. clean fish, chop it into steaks. (fish isnt huge, smallish)
some Michiu cooking wine, soy sauce, white pepper, scallions, ginger, fermented black bean and garlic. salt. tiny bit of sugar.
lid it and bake in oven (375 until done). you can steam it with the same great results.
