Tortilla fried catfish on a bed of queso, topped with pico de gallo. This was my friend Stephanie’s lunch at The Shady Grove in Austin, Texas. I think I got out lunched on this one.

I KNOW you got outlunched. I always have high hopes when I order other items at Shady Grove but none of them rank as high as this catfish. I may ask for a print so I can create a shrine to it!
I got a question? I’ve always heard that any type of fish and cheese do not mix well with each other, obviously you must have liked it to post it. but I am curious how do the flavors marry?
I don’t know. I just photographed it. I’ve never tasted it. My friend, Steph, ordered and ate it. As you can see from her previous comment, she LOVES this dish.
Yes – cheese with fish is.. a bit unconventional. I think the key (aside from being an Austintine with queso already flowing through my veins) is that this fish has a VERY crusty crushed tortilla chip exterior. Chips + queso = match made in heaven. And it really is just a little queso on the plate, with fish placed on top. Not a pool of it. To answer your question more bluntly: if I was not in a public place, I would have licked my plate. Literally. 🙂
HaHa Awesome! Thanks Stephanie for clarifying this burning question i’ve had for years!
I’ve always been of the opinion that cheese goes with ANYthing. I do remember my grandmother telling me never to drink milk with lobster, though, or it would curdle in my tummy. Have no idea why that might be a problem 🙂
I’m with you on the cheese thing.
