Swai fish is an extremely healthy choice and is great for weight watchers.  Swai is usually less expensive than haddock or tilapia.  Swai is a Southeast Asian catfish (member of the catfish family tree) but is also locally-farmed in the USA.  If you are watching where your food is coming from, check your package before purchasing.  Some of the packages of frozen fish come from China and/or Vietnam.  I have yet to find a package marked product of the USA.

This fish has a mild but buttery taste, much better than regular catfish, and it is really great for baking.  I purchase Swai in the bulk bag from the frozen food section of the market.  It will normally come in a 9-10 fillets per pack, and the fillets are large.  I discovered this fish as a happy accident and have been using it now whenever I want fish for dinner.  It also makes for wonderful tacos, leftover and chowder.  This is my preference over tilapia.

Today I baked my fish using my special seasoning (MSS) and EVOO.  I layered the pan with parchment paper and coated the paper with a thin layer of EVOO and MSS.  I placed the fish with plenty of space between each fillet (we do not want to steam the fish) on top of the EVOO and MSS.  I then sprinkled another thin layer of EVOO and MSS.  Then, I baked until done and served with a crisp salad.  For kicks, this is also good with seasoned brown rice.
