Friday's Dinner was Yummy!

Swai Two Ways. Friday's dinner.
Swai is a Vietnamese fish that is light like tilapia. It is also called iridescent shark or striped catfish (but is neither).
Side comment: I want very much to try shark.

---Roasted Swai Fish with Tomatoes, Basil and Chives. The chives were a pleasant addition from our windowsill each time I trim the plant down I smile because it reminds me of giving a Chia Pet a haircut). We also put a little McCormick's Garlic Sea Salt on top.

One of two fish recipes ready to go in the oven.
The cookie sheet is from my childhood.

-----Sweet Dijon Basa Swai Fish.
We used Rock Island, Illinois' legendary Boetje's Dutch stone ground mustard instead of Dijon.
Dill weed was sprinkled on top of the adults' portions.

There was also:
Seasoned Browned rice (leftovers).
Sweet onions sauteed in olive oil, Trader Joe's Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and freshly ground black pepper.

There was a marked difference between the two Swai dishes. The tomato dish was heavier and the Dijon was very light.
Husband and I both remarked that we wished we had some wine to go with...he wished for some white wine and I would have loved a Pinot Grigio.

We will definitely be adding Swai to our fish repertoire. :-)

Looks delicious!


It was delicious and I think it will taste so much more so when we can afford a white wine accompaniment.
