Sweet Sticky Swai !


I love cooking fish.  It is quick and easy and healthy.  Of late, I have become a huge fan of Swai.  The fillets tend to be a little larger than tilapia, with the same mild flavor.  Here is an Asian twist on your regular old fish fillet.




2Tbsp of cornstarch

3 Tbsp of honey and soy sauce

Zest of half an orange

1Tbsp of sambal

1tsp of ground ginger

1tsp of white pepper

Sesame seeds for garnish


Sprinkle (through a sifter for better coverage) cornstarch over the fish, make sure you get both sides.


Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, thoroughly.

Arrange the fillets in a skillet, snugly.  You want it to be cozy with the sauce.

Pour the sauce over the fillets

Bake at 375 for 15-20mins, till the fillets are flakey and cooked through.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve hot with veggies of your choice.
