Baked Swai (Catfish) Tacos

This is a super easy (and healthy) way to make fish tacos for dinner.  We included a scoop of crunchy Chipotle Slaw and a few delicious slices of avocado to create a taco that tastes fresh and light.  A squeeze of lime on top is a perfect final touch.

The Swai fillets can be purchased individually frozen, and are a real bargain at around $3 - $4 per pound.  Allow 1 fillet per person, or 2 tacos each.  This is a twist on Catfish Tacos that are pan-fried. 

1 cup Panko Crumbs
1 cup  Yellow Cornmeal
1 1/2 tsp  Old Bay Seasoning
1 tsp  Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp  Black Pepper
5  Swai Fillets
3  Large Eggs
10  Flour Soft Taco Shells
Fresh Lime Wedges
Sliced Avocado

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Foil and set aside.

Split each of the 5 fillets down the center to create 10 narrow fillets. Place fillets on a paper towel and set aside.

In a shallow bowl, combine panko crumbs, cornmeal, old bay, salt and pepper.  In a second bowl scramble the eggs. 

Next, start your assembly line. Dip each fillet in the egg mixture, then the crumb mixture and place on the foil lined pan.  When all fillets are coated, use an olive oil spray to lightly coat each piece of fish.  This will give the fish a lightly crunchy texture when it is cooked. 

Bake fillets about 15 minutes or until the fillets flake when tested with a fork.

To serve, place one fillet on a flour tortilla shell, top with a few spoons of Chipotle Cole Slaw, a few slices of avocado and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Enjoy!
