Southern Fried Catfish!

What fish sold in Phils comes closest to catfish taste?

Or tasty fish with not a lot of bones in it sold here in Phils?

My wife says catfish are called mudfish, or hito.   We see it fairly regularly in Iloilo.  I don't like fish, especially catfish, so I have never tried it. Here is a pic from our local market. Is that them?

I am only looking for dorado (mahi-mahi). They catch it around here but sell it elsewhere for more money (they say it is exported).

I find that Dorado has a neutral taste and can be quite dry.It is usually 260 a kilo here.

Can't answer your question but when I used to catch Catfish and Bullheads in MN. We would soak them in milk for a few hours before we would batter and fry them..good eating!

As you probably already know Tilapia are the bottom feeders here that people like to eat. And they taste good.
