Swai Flavor Profile

Swai is a Catfish from Vietnam which has a milder taste and more delicate texture than our native Channel Catfish and may therefore be more approachable for people who do not normally care for catfish.  Swai are moist, sweet and mild flavored with beige colored flesh which turns white after cooking.  It is coarser and more grainy textured than Basa, which is closely related and sometimes wrongly sold as Swai.
