    I had to google Swai...found this for those like me who never heard of it:

    "One economical option popping up at many stores is swai, which is native to Southeast Asia - Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia -- and sells locally for around $3.99 a pound. Since I knew nothing about swai, I asked Gavin Gibbons, a spokesman for the National Fisheries Institute, for a primer.

    Gibbons explained that swai, along with basa and tra, two related varieties also appearing at more and more stores, belong to what’s called the Pangasius family and they’re similar in character to catfish. In fact, the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, which has an authoritative site that tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the fish that end up on our dinner plates, describes swai as a river-farmed catfish, sometimes simply referred to in the U.S. only as catfish (be sure to look for country of origin labeling at the fish counter to determine whether your catfish is from the Mekong Delta or the Mississippi Delta).

    Swai is a white-flesh fish (typically available in fillet form) with a sweet mild, taste and light flaky texture that can be broiled, grilled, or coating with bread crumbs and fried, according to experts. It can be prepared simply, but also takes well to sauces. A 3.5-ounce serving of plain fish contains around 90 calories, 4 grams of fat (1.5 saturated), 45 grams of cholesterol and 50 milligrams of sodium. Not bad."

    I was introduced to it a couple of month ago by this lady at the fish counter at the supermarket. Its cheap and it compares to a sea bass.

    I takes well to marinades. I marinaded it in garlic and spices, then breaded it and fried it. Good stuff.

    Well the Swai was interesting. I can see what would make it a good dish, the way I prepared it for the first time was a letdown though. I pan fried it. If I just seasoned it and did it in butter it probably would have been better. Instead I covered it in a seasoned cornmeal mix. I can see how it would take marinades well, especially for a quick bake. I think next time though I'll actually deep fry it with a tempura batter if I can get my hands on an NO2 whipper

    i bought mock meat yesterday & used it twice already. as long as you have equal part meat you wouldn't even know it's there. made bolognese today & i mixed half ground beef to half "ground" vege-meat. tastes lighter but basically still the same.

    Yes.

    Marinade in just a bit of soy, ginger and garlic. Then bake.

    Or...

    Grill it after fixing it up however you like. I usually just use sea salt and let the meat speak for itself.
