I brought this baked swai dish to a recent family dinner, and I wanted to share this super simple recipe with you!
If you have never heard of Swai, it is one of my favorite fishes. (I like saying ”fishes” – it’s a fun word!).
Swai 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. This means it shows up on our dinner table quite often!
All of these reasons make Swai 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.
Where do I buy Swai Fillets?
Swai is typically sold in the frozen seafood section of your grocery stores. Major brands such as Orca Bay sell swai, but you will also often find no-name-brand packages of swai in the same freezer section.
How do I cook Swai?
Just like most seafood, Swai fillets tastes GREAT with a bit of lemon or lime. So in this recipe I bake the swai in a delicious garlicky sauce made with lemon juice and white wine. It’s such a tasty, delicate flavor that really works well with white fish such as swai.
The White Wine Lemon Garlic Sauce can be made in advance. This makes 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.
You’ll need a large baking pan for this recipe, such as this one here. Or if you don’t want to mess with washing fishy dishes, you can use disposable aluminum baking trays such as these. Just make sure your baking pan has high sides, so you don’t accidentally spill the delicious 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!)
This is a great recipe for serving a family or serving a crowd. It is so easy to bake swai in a large baking pan without having to fuss over each individual fillet. You can also easily double this recipe if you wanted to.
This baked swai would be great served with a simple pasta tossed in olive oil or with rice. It would also go great with a piece of crusty bread to soak up the delicious white wine sauce.
We actually had this Baked Swai as part of a large family get together. Here are some of the other recipes we made for dinner that night:
