Inihaw na Hito (Grilled catfish)

Next to Bangus, Hito (catfish) are Filipinos’ favorite non-salty water fish.  They are normally abundant in some lakes or cultivated.  There are various ways of serving it but it grilling it is the easiest!

Inihaw na Hito


Depending on the size count one hito per person

some salt

some calamansi juice (lemon juice)

cooking oil

freshly milled peppers

Dipping sauce:

4 tablespoons of soy sauce

chopped red onions

chopped chili (optional)

3 tablespoons of vinegar


Start by cleaning your Hito or catfish.  Take off all the intestines and all innards.  Wash it.  Pat it dry.  Scrub salt,calamansi juice and cooking oil inside and outside the fish.  Grilled it for about ten to twenty minutes depending on the size.  Serve it with your dipping sauce, mix all together.
