Did not care for this one much and think it may be because I have never poached fish and wasn't accustomed to it - also, I'm not a big fan of catfish. Stuffing was very good and seasonings were interesting!
Wonderful, just wonderful. Beside an european type of catfish I have used a white flesh fish called Pangasius (it has a wonderful nutty flavor). This recipe is so easy to make and to roll it up makes it a beeauty. But the best, it will keep all flavours in the fish roll ups, great. Instead of red pepper flakes I used fresh chilis to give it a very spicy touch. It works well. I love this flavourful carribean styled fish dishes. And this one is fantastic. If you make it for guests I would suggest to use different firm fleshed fish types. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
