Swai Fillets Over Couscous


Fish and Couscous a Perfect Pair!

Swai is a white flesh fish, typically available in fillet form, with a sweet mild, taste and light flaky texture that can be broiled, grilled, or coating with bread crumbs and fried, according to experts. It can be prepared simply, but also takes well to sauces.

A 4 ounce serving of plain fish contains around 70 calories, 14 g of protein, 30 mg of cholesterol and 50 milligrams of sodium.  Not bad.
