Lasang Pinoy Sundays: CRUSTY


Crusty. That’s the theme for this week’s Lasang Pinoy Sundays. I thought a crusty bread would be perfect. A crusty baguette, a sourdough boule. And soft, creamy cheese on the side. But the weather was so perfect for outdoor grilling. And husband was not interested in crusty bread and cheese for lunch.  He wants fish. So here’s the Herb Crusted Catfish we had for lunch the other day.   A few snips of herbs, a cup of panko breadcrumbs and some spices…hmmm….a perfect dish with a side of coleslaw!

Herb Crusted Catfish


  • 1 piece catfish fillet
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • a handful of parsley, chopped
  • 2 stems of chives, chopped
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 1 tbs dijon mustard
  • 2 tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp chili pepper
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • salt and pepper to taste



  1. Mix all ingredients (except catfish fillet) in a bowl.
  2. Apply on top of catfish fillet, patting firmly.
  3. Grill on medium heat for 15 minutes, with grill cover closed.  Alternatively, you can bake the fish in 350F oven for 20 minutes until flaky and top is brown and crusty.
  4. Serve hot with salad or rice.

That is a thing of beauty! It’s a perfect combination: the crunchy crustiness pairs so well with the soft texture of catfish. The side salad looks refreshing as well!

We love catfish as well! We’re now trying the other fish – rock cod and sole. Do you like them as well? We also turned a blind eye to the price and get some nice big scallops from costco. We love the Chilean seabass specially when they’re on sale in 99 ranch.

What other fish would you recommend?

Thanks, TN, ces and jenn!

iska: yep…uber crunchy, too! :)

luna: it is easy to make and taste really yummy!

carlos: we love all kinds of fish. especially chilean sea bass (darn expensive, though!). how did you cook the scallops? we also like tilapia grilled or broiled (i love it deep fried whole, so crunchy!).

FoodieJenn: give the catfish a try. it’s also great cooked in coconut milk!

Lynn: thanks! we really enjoy it cooked this way.

this is my kind of a meal.. healthy, yummy, and fast to prepare! i’m not a catfish fan though.. i’d probably substitute mine with tilapia.
