How to Bake Swai Fish in the Oven

Swai is a type of catfish that thrives in the rivers of Asia. When baked, swai has a light, flaky consistency and a slightly sweet, mild flavor. It's also called Basa or Pangasius, and it is sometimes cultivated on fish farms in the United States. Swai that is cultivated on these American farms is considered a "best choice," as the farming practices are more ecologically responsible than some Asian catfish farms, according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
