Parmesan Crusted Swai: Quick, Easy and Frugal

parmesan crusted swaiHave you ever heard of ?  I recently heard this whitefish about from my parents, who had purchased it in Florida. Recently, I saw it my Target store and prepared it at home. It’s a very mild white fish comparable to tilapia.  In fact, I normally make this recipe with tilapia but it worked wonderfully with the filets too.   What I like about this recipe is that it takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

Crusted Swai

Panko bread crumbs (or other bread crumbs)
Olive oil
3 Tbsp. butter, softened
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 C. grated Parmesan (the kind in the green can)
Cracked black pepper
Garlic powder

Preheat your oven’s broiler.  Dip the fish filets in milk, then in panko.

Broil for 2-3 minutes. Take the filets out of the oven and spread the Parmesan sauce over it. Shake with basil, pepper, and garlic powder according to taste. Put back under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is brown and bubbly.
