Sweet Dijon Basa Swai Fish (or a fish of your choice)

tinkerbell773

"Did you know that Basa can be as little as $3.99 a pound at most grocery stores? Yup and this hidden treasure is the most delicious, tender, fish I have ever had. It goes well with all fish recipes and is a great substitute for expensive fish. This recipe was so good my family wanted it again the very next day! Its sweet and tangy and just down right delicious."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Mix honey, mayonnaise, olive oil, mustard, and lemon juice together in a bowl.
  3. Place each fish fillet on separate pieces of aluminum foil. Drizzle honey sauce over each fish fillet. Gently wrap the aluminum foil around each coated fish fillet, crimping the foil together over the top to seal into a packet.
  4. Bake fillets in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 13 minutes. Place one fish fillet on each serving plate and top with leftover sauce from foil packet.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I like to use the Dijon mustard that has all the seeds in it, because it makes this dish look much more like a professional chef did it, but you can really use any kind of Dijon mustard you want.

Best swai recipe I've tried !

Most helpful critical review

Way too sweet. If I were to make it again I would decrease the honey by half. Also, the mixture over the fish turned very liquidy, the fish wasn't browned. The fish looked unappetizing and pale....

i loved the taste. i'm not sure why mine came out so watery. i had to open up the foil and cook for 15 more minutes.

My kids and I loved this recipe! I didn't wrap the fish in foil, I just placed the fish in a glass baking dish and covered with the sauce. Drying the thawed fish with a paper towel can reduce ...

Great recipe for swai! However, this came out a little bit sweet for my tastes, so I used about a tablespoon of soy sauce, paprika, and some cumin seeds. Turned out perfectly! This is a very go...

This came out so tasty! Will be making it again.

This has become one of our favorite dinners! The only thing I change is instead of Dijon mustard I use honey mustard. It makes the fish so light and sweet. We serve the fish over white rice. Mmm...

This was delicious and even our picky teenage boys ate it faster than we did. No complaints so this mom gives it a two thumbs up. Wouldn't change anything and yes we had to cook longer.
