Swai fillets come from the swai fish of the Pangasisus family native to southern Asia. They are produced in an aquaculture environment also known as farm raised. Swai fish are similar to catfish and are also raised in the United States.
Swai package labeling can display an origin from the Mekong Delta in south Asia or the Mississippi Delta in the United States. The flavor of swai fillets range from mild to sweet with a soft, flaky texture and white in color. Swai fillets can be prepared like traditional catfish and fried in a bread crumb batter, broiled or grilled.
