Grilled Swai

As you know, we discovered Swai this past year. And it has quickly become a favorite. Well, with most of it. I have one who isn't keen on any fish.  But the rest of us love it. And it is cheap. And easy.  That makes me love it even more.

Recently, a FB friend of mine mentioned that he had grilled Swai. We have pan fried it and baked it but never grilled it.

Since our grilling season will wind down soon, I thought tonight was a good night to try.

Oh, yum.

Even my non fish eater ate some of it.

Apple Wood Chips (soaked)

Swai (we had 6 filets)

Olive Oil

Lawry's Seasoned Salt

After soaking the wood chips, place them in the bottom of your grill. I actually bought a metal box that is made for wood chips.  It worked wonderfully.

Heat up the chips. (350 degrees)

Be prepared. Your yard will smell SOOOOO good.

Brush the Swai with olive oil and then sprinkle some seasoned salt.  I did it very lightly so it wouldn't be too salty.

Put the swai on the other end of the grill (no heat below it) and close the lid.  After about 10 minutes, flip the swai over.  Brush with more olive oil or sprinkle with more seasoned salt if desired.  Note:  Use a large spatula to flip it. If you try using tongs, the fish WILL fall apart.

Grill for about 10 more minutes, until the fish flakes easily.


We ate ours with almond rice pilaf, French bread, and a salad.

The only sad thing is there were no leftovers for me for lunch tomorrow. :(
