i miss this type of simple Filipino dish. This would be super good if I have fresh fish. Anyway, my husband bought a pack of catfish at Costco. I adobo and fried some of it but since I was craving for tinola, I tried some of it. I asked a friend first if catfish works on Tinola and since she is expert in kitchen stuff and said yes, any fish will do. That was a go signal for me to experiment on the Tinola catfish. In fairness, I love it and surely filled my stomach up.
