Pan-seared Swai Fish

This was my first time trying Swai...and wow, I'm impressed! I like it better than tilapia, it's cheaper, and it's lower calorie. And YUM!!
  • 2 5.3 oz Swai fillets
  • butter flavored cooking spray
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • other seasonings as desired (I used some Mrs. Dash lemon pepper).
1. Heat a pan to med-high heat and spray with butter flavored spray. Spray both sides of Swai with butter spray and sprinkle liberally with Salt and Pepper.
2. Cook, searing on each side, for about 3 minutes per side, or until flaky. You may have to loosen the bottom of the fish periodically so it won't stick.

  8. Because part of cake making is understanding the right pans, the right amount baking time, and the appropriate amount of cooling time necessary, it is always a very fruitful and beneficial exercise to master these more complicated ways of making cake bodies.
