  • Roast in the preheated oven until flesh is opaque, 10 to 15 minutes. Flake into large pieces with a fork. Lay the flaked fish out on a plate to dry.

  • Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Fry fish in batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Try not to break up the fish too much in the pan.

  • Toss mango, shallots, cilantro, green onions, peanuts, fish sauce, lime juice, Thai chiles, and sugar together in a large bowl. Toss in crispy catfish at the very last minute. Check the seasoning; the salad should taste sour, hot, and salty, with a slight sweetness at the end.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute whole catfish with 3/4 pound catfish, sole, or haddock fillet if desired. Roast fillets at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

You can substitute sour green apple for the green mango.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
