And now we are finally up to the main course: Baked Swai in a White Wine Lemon Garlic Sauce.
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 much more affordable 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 (say THAT 5 times fast!). Plus swai is so easy to cook, it’s perfect for when you have lots of other recipes to worry about in the kitchen.
This is a great recipe for serving a family or serving a crowd because it is so easy to bake swai in a large baking pan. You can easily double this recipe if you wanted to, and it would still come out perfect.
The White Wine Lemon Garlic Sauce can be made in advance, so that the prep & cook time is very quick when it’s time to bake the swai fillets. Just pour the sauce over the swai fillets in a baking dish, and pop it in the oven.
This baked swai would be great served with a simple pasta tossed in olive oil or with rice to soak up the delicious white wine sauce.
(Sorry for the lack of fancy serving ware – we devoured the Swai Fillets before I had a chance to take photos – it was just too good, sitting there looking at us, covered in white wine lemon sauce, being all irresistible!)
