Catfish ‘fingers’


Catfish 'fingers'

Here’s a plate of catfish pieces from Dinosaur BBQ.  I prefer to call them catfish ‘fingers’.  nothing too odd about these, but they are very different from the catfish in Thailand.  Thais eat a lot of catfish (bplaa duk [ปลาดุก]) prepared in many ways.  Thailand is also known for some of the largest catfish in the world: the mekong giant catfish.  These fish can be in excess of 250 kilograms!  Unfortunately, they are very endangered due to overfishing so I don’t plan on giving them a taste anytime soon.
