What Is Best Alternative To Katla Fish?  

 If you live in North America and are a Bengali you most likely have had Katla fish. It’s like an everyday Bengali Fish. Katla fish in North America is mostly imported from Bangladesh as a frozen whole fish or cleaned and cut into frozen cubes.

I found them sometimes too old, almost more that a year from its original packaging date. Also, they overtime lose their freshness and original taste.

So this Buffalo fish has almost the same taste as the Katla fish. It’s a strong alternative for Katla fish lovers. I get them fresh from grocery stores. It’s really cheap sometime available for $1.99/lb. You need to take the whole fish though which could be about 5-7 pounds. What I do is, I freeze them and use it as much as I want. It’s always better than 1-year-old frozen Bangladeshi Katla maach.

You can cook Katla the same way as some of my Katla fish recipes.
