How to Cook Tasty Swai Fillets

Save

Swai are farmed river catfish native to Southeast Asia. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, and they are naturally low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Much like the American catfish, Swai are light, sweet and flaky. Often compared to the mild cod and sole, Swai can be used in pretty much any recipe calling for basic fish. The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program notes that most imported river catfish from Asia is labeled just as "catfish," so check the country of origin label to determine from which country your catfish came.
