I came up with this recipe one day standing in front of the freezer for inspiration. The swai is a 'meaty' fish that when coupled with Asiago and Miracle Whip® tastes like crab cakes without the hassle. Side with steamed broccoli or any fresh vegetable that is steamed.

First off - the cook time on this is WAY off - try 15 minutes at 350 degrees or 10 minutes max at 425. I used mayonnaise and a squirt of lemon with a bit of garlic salt instead of Miracle Whip. For the bread crumbs I used Panko crumbs. The crumb base didn't crisp up like I had hoped because of the cooking temperature of 350. The flavor was pretty good and this could easily be a stellar recipe with a few changes. I served this with broccoli and couscous. Read More
