This recipe is delicious. My kids even enjoy it, veggies and all. The hoisin sauce adds a delightful sweetness to the entire meal, and the variety of ingredients make for a lovely presentation. The mixture of flavors is well-balanced and proves that deep-frying is not the only way to make catfish. The recipe does have a bit of sauce to it, which is easily soaked up by the tortillas. Or sometimes we skip the tortillas and serve the mixture directly over rice.
