'This cheap fish has sweet taste and flaky'
Howard and I ate a strange fish yesterday, I mean a fish we had never eaten before.
It is Swai!
That is a picture of a Swai up above. Luckily I did not see it before I ate my Swai because I could get affectionate toward a fish that looks like that. I like big animals and there is something sweet and ugly about this one.
"The swai fish taste may blow you away because this cheap fish has sweet taste and flaky."
Hahahahaa! And here is a video about Swai. It says: "They like to stay in temple and very big fish."
In plain English: Swai is like catfish and it is very low calorie ... 90 calories per 3.5 ounces. I'm in! Plus, the explanation I just linked to is dated 2009 and already it is complaining about how expensive fresh fish is. That is the truth! Now it is even more expensive.
Anyway, for $3.99 a pound the Swai was delish. We ate it in corn tortillas with guacamole and lime sour cream. And cabbage. Howard has had to become resigned to the fact that with a German wife you will have cabbage more often than not. That is why they call us Krauts.
