I noticed swai in the frozen fish bin just this morning and did a double-take -- funny looking word, that. If I had seen this earlier; I might have gotten some. I've bought the tilapia individually frozen the same way as the swai and like it well enough. Fish from the Gulf are available here, but at 4 bucks a gallon (well, $3.80) to go get them, I'll probably not "bite."

hmm, never thought of that. gas prices will affect the cost of fish much more than other proteins. you don't have to chase cows or chickens across nautical miles, afterall.

swai is good chunked and grilled on skewers of slightly larger chunked green peppers, onions, and pineapple. and cherry tomatoes, beer soaked mushrooms, and hot cherry peppers, and cubed oil rubbed eggplant, and sliced peaches, and so on. the idea is to make the chunks of fish slightly smaller than the other ingredients on the skewer so it cooks but doesn't touch the grill so as to stick.

Tilapia are not popular in asia and are popular in usa. They don''t have much in the way of flavor. Swai is a type of catfish, therefore taste and texture are similar. You will also see Basa, and striped pangasius, same stuff. Treat them all like you would catfish.

BT, that sounds really good. Did you marinate the swai?
