Catfish and Noodle Soup Recipe

Catfish and Noodle Soup Recipes

Ingredients :

4 tbsp fish sauce

1-2 tsp finely shredded fresh ginger

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

3/4 lb catfish fillets

2 oz rice sticks, soaked in water for 20 minutes

2 tbsp peanut oil

1/2 tsp Madras curry powder

2 tsp finely minced, tender lemongrass

1 medium-sized onion, thinly sliced

1.5 tsp shrimp paste

1 tsp turmeric

5 cup simmering water

1 lime, cut into wedges

3 tbsp whole cilantro leaves

Method :

In a medium bowl, mix 2 tbsp of fish sauce with the ginger, salt and pepper. Slice the catfish into bite-sized pieces and stir into the fish sauce mixture, coating the catfish with sauce. Set aside to marinate. In a large heavy-bottomed pan, heat the oil over medium heat and stir-fry the curry powder, lemongrass, onion and shrimp paste for 6-7 minutes, or until onion has softened, breaking up the shrimp paste against the side of the pan.

Stir in the turmeric until well mixed, then add the simmering water, the rice sticks, and the remaining fish sauce. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the catfish, again bring to the boil, reduce heat, and simmer gently until the fish is opaque - about 3-4 minutes. Pour into heated bowls, divide the cilantro leaves among the bowls, and serve with lime wedges.

Serves 4-6
