Swai is a relatively new fish in the meat counters of my area of the country. While shopping at Sam’s, I saw the bags of frozen Swai fillets and they looked so good that I decided to buy them even though I did not know what the heck a Swai was. I think that what appealed the most to me was the price; $3.99 per pound, wow!So, I brought it home and Googled it. Swai is apparently similar in behavior to the catfish. It comes from the Mekong Delta and other areas of Southeast Asia (Thailand, Laos and Vietnam). It is considered a white fish and it is sweet, mild in taste and nice and flaky.Since I had a whole bag of the fillets, I decided to experiment a bit and cooked them different ways. I fried it, baked it, grilled it, etc. It turned out great every way I tried it. However, my favorite experiment is as follows below.
