Whole Catfish

Saigon Pagolac

HoustonPress
Served entirely whole -- yes, head and tail still on -- it provides more than enough meat to feed a table of people, especially when tucked inside ''roll-your-own'' rice paper sheets with bean sprouts, cucumbers, pickled carrots and other Vietnamese fixings. [...] The fish itself is cooked to a crispy, caramelized brown on the outside, meaning the skin tastes almost like fish candy. [...] the head and cheeks are too tough to eat at this point, but the skin itself is so good (as is the main body) that it's difficult to care. [...] Saigon Pagolac garnishes the catfish with a merry sprinkling of green onions, chopped peanuts and pork skin.
