Someone recently asked me how to cook a carp (catfish) As we all know fish is good for us and so many of us love to include it with our many other dishes. So think about it for your next meal.

DON'T FORGET - cooking a fish doesn't take that long --- only a few moments-- so do it when you are almost ready to eat ---Here's a recipe for a 1 1/2 lb. catfish and how to cook it. First, buy it fresh at some Chineses supermarket -- and of course, have them clean it for you -- if you want the head removed, that's fine - they will do it for you. Then rinse it off when you get home -- leave in cold water -- when ready, put catfish on a flat dish and put it in the microwave and cook until it is done --put aside -- then chop up some green onions, fresh ginger, and place over fish (after it's cooked) sprinkle 1 tsp. sugar on top, add 1 tsp. soya sauce (as desired) and pour some hot sesame oil (1 TBSP) over it to seal in the flavor. Makes a great gravy too. Enjoy! Another excellent dish to add to bring in and celebrate that Chinese New Year feast.
