Defrost catfish fillet (it’s better to do it before in natural way). To do it faster we recommend you to put catfish into bowl with cold water and 1\2 tsp of salt. Then wash fillet thoroughly and cut the needed pieces. The maximum size of them shouldn’t be more than 5 cm. Put fish into clean bowl, strew it with salt and black pepper and stir them all well. Leave it for 5 minutes to soak catfish.

Melt butter in the stewpan, dip catfish pieces in flour and put them in. Fry both sides of fillets until the golden crust appear. It should take 3-4 minutes. Please look after to prevent burned fish.

Wash tomatoes and make a small incision on each one, then dip tomatoes into boiling water for 10-15 seconds. After that it will be very easy to remove their peels and slice. Wash onions and slice them as well. Put onions into red-hot stewpan with oil and fry a bit. Then add tomatoes and saute them all again for several minutes. The next step is to put there previously fried catfish and add 70 ml of water. Cover the dish and smother it until all water disappear.

Wash greens and cut it finely. Put the finished dish into plates and sprinkle with greens. Fried catfish with tomatoes is incredibly sappy and flavorful. You can eat it simply or with additional side dish as rice or potatoes.

It’s recommended to serve this catfish hot.
