Air Fryer Swai Fillet Fish Recipes

Air fryer swai fillet fish recipe that is easy to make at home. I love air fryers because they use hot air to cook your food quickly and with little or no fat at all! Swai is incredibly good for you; it’s low in fat, filled with protein, and has more omega-3 fatty acids than almost any other fish.

What Is Swai Fish?

Swai fish is a type of catfish that comes in fillets. It can be used in place of most any kind of white-fleshed fish you want to cook.

Swai fillets are found in most grocery stores and at a reasonable price. You can find swai in the seafood section near other fish varieties, or you can also get it at Asian markets.

The swai has a mild flavor and firm texture, making it great for recipes that call for frying or baking fish.

Swai has only about 25 calories and 2 grams of fat, and one serving gives you about 100% of your daily need for vitamin B-12. This swai fillet recipe is simple and delicious!
