Recipe: Swai Filet with Avocado

Swai is a lovely fish that tastes both light and fatty. It pairs well texture-wise with the creaminess of ripe avocado. The sauce is prepared separately, then tossed in with the fish.


1.5 Swai filets, cut into strips 1 ripe avocado, cut into small cubes 1 handful of fresh parsley 2-3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan or aged cheddar 1 tablespoon of bread crumbs 2 garlic cloves olive oil pepper to taste

Separate the leaves of the parsley from the stems and place in a mini food processor. Add  the cheese, breadcrumbs, and garlic, and pulse for a few seconds. Add as much olive oil as the mixture will absorb, and grind the mix into a fine paste, like pesto.

Heat up olive oil in a medium skillet. Drop in the Swai, add the parsley sauce you just prepared, and coat the fish in it. Add pepper to taste. Put a cover on the skillet and cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Toss in the avocado, stir, cover, turn off the heat and let sit for five minutes. Serves 2.

Et voilà!

    What would you serve this with?

  4. It goes well on a bed of brown rice. Or you could serve with light greens on the side like arugula or sauted spinach.

    Just cooked this tonight, thought it was to oily for my taste, so next time I will put less oil in it, but I like the recipe

  6. Cool. I admit I love unctuous food, so I’m generous with the oil, but you can always tweak to your taste. Enjoy!
