Here is another tasty way to use Swai Fish Filets in a spicy Po'Boy-Style sandwich. Swai has become a favorite at seafood markets because it is so reasonably priced and has a mild sweet flavor similar to regular catfish.
The sauce used on the fish is quite versatile and can be used on shrimp or even chicken for a delicious zingy flavor. As a finishing touch, a squeeze of fresh lime or lemon tops this sandwich off nicely.
1 lb Swai Fillets, cut into 1-inch to 1 1/2-inch pieces
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
3 TB Olive Oil
1 - 2 tsp Sriracha (to taste)
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 TB Fresh Finely Chopped Basil
1 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Hoagie Rolls, Sliced lengthwise and hollowed out in the center
In a medium glass bowl, toss all ingredients until fish is evenly coated. Let marinate for 20-30 minutes at room temperature.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Carefully pour the marinated fish mixture into the hot skillet. Arrange fish into a single layer and let saute about 3 minutes before turning and cook 2-3 minutes longer. Remove skillet from heat and prepare sandwiches immediately by placing a piece of leaf lettuce on a hoagie roll and then filling the center with the fish. Enjoy!!
