Title: Chinese Fried Catfish with Ground Pork Sauce
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Main Dishes, Seafood, Asian

Ingredients:

2 ts Sesame oil
1 tb Corn oil
1/2 ts Chile oil
1/2 lb Ground pork
6 Green onions; 1" lengths
2 ts Ginger; shredded
2 Garlic cloves; minced
2 ts Soy sauce
1/4 c Rice wine
1/4 c Hot water
Salt
2 lb Catfish fillets
Oil for frying


Combine sesame, corn and chile oils in wok or large skillet. Add pork and
stir fry quickly over high heat, breaking pork up into smallest possible
pieces with wooden spoon. When pork begins to brown, add green onions,
ginger and garlic. Continue to stir fry about 2 minutes. Add soy sauce,
rice wine and water. Stir well and reduce heat to low. Meanwhile, lightly
salt catfish fillets to taste. Fry, turning once, in another skillet over
medium high heat. Continue stirring sauce while fish fries. When fish is
cooked but not overdone (about 2-3 minutes to a side), remove to warm
dinner plates. Sauce should have reduced to thick, syrup-like consistency.
If too liquid, raise heat to high and continue cooking, stirring
constantly, about 1 more minute. Spoon sauce over fish.
