Catfish Belly Adobo And Mungbean Soup

Catfish Belly Adobo

I love catfish adobo and when I see just bellies I always get them. To prepare marinate the bellies for an hour in vinegar, garlic, salt, extra virgin olive oil and kikkoman soy sauce, drain and fry in hot olive oil until brown. Then boil the marinade until thick, and pour over the fried bellies, yum, yum, yum. BoiI the mungbeans with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, 2 smashed garlic cloves and 1 chopped onion, add 1 teaspoon sea salt when fully cooked, then add malunggay leaves (horseradish tree) which I get frozen from the Filipino grocery. I drizzle more extra virgin olive oil before serving using only Spanish or Portuguese olive oil as they are more robust than Italian or French.

I also made a Chinese vegetarian stir fry using canned vegetable mix and flavored gluten for non fish eaters.

Oggie, the background color is just ok. Not sure it complements the food. Try another.
But the idea of adobo catfish and monggo sounds great. I've never seen catfish bellies here. Will have to try the grilled cheese apple sandwich.

how about this one? I can't decide, maybe I'll use the green one again.
About the bellies, the package says nuggets but I know they are bellies, not sure if the grocery people package them, most probably they do because I have not seen them anywhere else.
Good news, I froze a small portion of leftover spaghetti squash, tried it after 4 days and they still are a bit crunchy, not at all mushy.

A, I got the bellies from Shopper's Food Warehouse. This was almost 4 years ago and I'm not sure if they still sell them.
