Sauteed Swai Fillets with Green Salad and Honey Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Ok, so I have to admit that Swai is not my favorite fish, but it's inexpensive and if you're going to eat it, this recipe will do just fine. I served it with a fresh green salad drizzled with honey grapefruit vinaigrette.
Recipes follow.

Sauteed Swai Fillets
  • 3 large Swai fillets, thawed, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablesoons garlic powder
  • salt to taste
  • lemon pepper to taste
  1. In large, deep sauce pan or sautee pan, heat olive oil, then add butter and heat until melted.
  2. Add red wine vinegar and give a light stir, then add a pinch of salt and the garlic powder.
  3. Add Swai fillets, and continue cooking over medium heat.
  4. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning onto each fillet.
  5. After about 3 minutes, carefully flip fillets, sprinkling other side with lemon pepper, and continue cooking for about 4 minutes, or until outside is opaque.
  6. Serve immediately, spooning sauce from pan over fish.

  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
