Vietnamese catfish spring rolls

Missed the stream? Watch it on Twitch!

One of the things I like doing every once in a while on stream is going back to recipes I made on my blogs years ago, and trying them out again.

Obviously we do that every Saturday, when we remake (and retake the photos) of old Sushiday sushi recipes.

But today we revisited something we were both very excited about – a Vietnamese catfish recipe that I first made in 2009, and then again in 2013.

This time, the one big change was that we actually broiled the catfish after we baked it.

(This is the first time we’ve actually lived in a place with a working broiler.)

While the catfish was in the oven for an hour, I decided to make a drink with some lychees that Son’s dad gave him last week.

I found this recipe for pineapple and lychee fizz, which turned out deliciously.

Tropical vacation, here I come!

Once the catfish came out of the oven, it was spring roll time!

Can you guess which rolls I made, and which were Son’s?

(Hint: Son’s reeeeallllly bad at rolling spring rolls. Even his own mom makes fun of his rolling skillz.)

The catfish skin was crispy, the flesh was fatty and flavorful, and overall it was oh, so good.

Our only complaint: we wish we had gotten a bigger catfish!

    Travelling is the best way to try different food the country is famous for. I definitly love Japan food and will certainly keep in mind your post if I travel in this country. As I work in an events promotion company, and food events is one of our biggest event category, occasionally I will see things I am very tempted to try them out! Jorlio.com
