Happy New Year!

If you haven’t been following along with the delicious dinner party recipes I’ve been posting, here they are:

Part I: Green Beans with Cranberries, Almonds, and Goat Cheese in a Fig Balsamic Glaze

Part II: Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms

Part III: My signature Beet and Bleu Cheese Salad with a Citrus Dressing

And now we are finally up to the main course. For the main course we had Latkes with Leeks and a Swai Bake with White Wine Lemon Garlic Sauce. The Latkes recipe will have to wait – my mom made them, so I will have to try her recipe and then write about it.

But here is the Swai recipe. It would be great served with a simple pasta tossed in olive oil or with rice to soak up the delicious white wine sauce.

Swai Bake with White Wine

If you have never heard of Swai, it is one of my favorite fishes. (I like having the opportunity to say ”fishes” – it’s a fun word!). It tastes very light and is not too fishy, and cooks very quickly because the fillets are pretty thin. It is also cheaper than a lot of other seafood. All of these reasons make it perfect for a large dinner party – you won’t be breaking the bank, and even people who don’t like fishy fish might enjoy this dish. Plus it’s so easy to cook, it’s perfect for when you have lots of other recipes to worry about in the kitchen.

(Sorry for the lack of fancy serving ware. We had to bake this at my aunt’s house, and had no time for pictures after we transferred the Swai to the serving dish.)


Swai Bake with White Wine Lemon Garlic Sauce

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

1 swai fillet

Ingredients

  • 6 Swai fillets (thawed if frozen)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, stems removed and finely diced
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon paprika (it adds a nice touch of color)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a large baking dish.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the white wine, butter, lemon juice, salt, and minced garlic. Cook while stirring until all the butter melts.
  3. Arrange the swai fillets in the baking dish. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt, pepper to taste, and paprika. Pour the white wine sauce over the fish. Sprinkle with parsley.
  4. Bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes, or until the swai is fully cooked and flakes easily. Serve warm. That's it! Super simple. Cooking for a large crowd couldn't get easier.

  1. I made this Swai with white wine and garlic sauce, the entire family loved it. I had a few swai and a tilipa fillets and both were delious !!
    thanks for the recipe

  2. I just made this and it was delicious! I added capers, which gave it a nice change in texture. I’ve never made swai before and this seemed like a good starter recipe. I can’t wait to try your chili lime version.

  3. Kate! Your sauce is SOOOO yummy! Next time I’m going to double the sauce for serving over rice 🙂 I definitely added your recipe to my pinterest files! Thank you

  4. The first time I tried this, I used some moscato that I’d gotten at a good sale price and wasn’t too fond of for drinking, but it sure made the fish taste awesome! I’ve made it a couple of more times after that and it’s always a hit with my family!

    1. Hi Adrienne! Thanks for stopping by and letting me know you enjoyed this recipe. It means a lot to me! 🙂

      I also often use wine that is not great for drinking to make this – usually a bottle that I didn’t finish drinking, it’s perfect for cooking!
