Honey Garlic Swai

Fish is healthy and delicious, but it can be really expensive. Swai is a tasty white-flesh fish very similar to Catfish, and it can be prepared just like flounder. Broil it, grill it, coat it with bread crumbs and fry it...Swai loves all those things. Swai is easy. And cheap. (Not gonna make a 'your mom' joke here...even though I could.)

Swai usually comes in an economy pack bag in the freezers of your grocery store's fish section. Here's my you sort of know what to look for:

Sometimes the Swai is packed in individual plastic bags inside these packs. Just be sure you take them out of the packs to defrost them, or they'll taste very fishy. Here's my defrosted and washed Swai, looking very sexy! Let's preheat the oven to 425...because Swai likes it HOT!

I...should probably give you ingredients. You'll need: 
1/2 cup Cider Vinegar
4 tb Honey
2 tb Soy
4 tb Minced Garlic  

Mix these guys together in a cup and we're ready to party!

Cover a pan with foil, cover with cooking spray, and lay your Swai on top of that. Then, cover your fish with about half of the sauce. We'll be putting more on later. Put this in the oven for 20 minutes. Now's a good time to start your white rice and veggies or whatever you plan on eating with this.  

After 20 minutes, remove your fish, cover with a bit MORE sauce. Put this under the BROILER for 2-3 minutes. Don't let it burn! Swai doesn't like to burn.   

It comes out looking nicely browned. Add the rest of your sauce! 

Put it on a plate. Stare at how beautiful it is!  

This would probably be a good time to eat it!
