Pecan Crusted Swai with Herb Crystals

Press Sample

With our recent effort to eat a healthier diet, I’ve been preparing more fish than ever.  It is such an excellent source of lean protein.  My family gets a little bored with fish, though, so I have to be creative.  I recently purchased some Swai fillets to try out (yah, I had never heard of Swai fish, let alone prepared it).  When I brought them home, Hubs was like, “What are you going to do with those?” and gave me the look that says, “Make it good, or never make it again.”

Ingredients for Pecan Crusted Swai with Herb Crystals

I grabbed the coconut oil, my favorite fish seasoning, some pecans, some sesame seeds, and a bottle of basil Herb Crystals.Preparing Pecan Crusted Swai with Herb Crystals

When it came out of the oven, I served it with a fresh baby spring greens salad. The result was this delectable dish that Hubs AND the kids said, “You can make that again!” Next time I’ll have to make a fourth fillet, because everyone was disappointed that there were no “second.” Oh my yum!  I thought I’d share the recipe, so you can make it, too.
