  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange aluminum foil on a work surface and lightly spray cooking spray onto 1 side of each.
  2. Place 1 swai fish fillet onto the middle of each piece of foil; season with salt and pepper. Layer lemon slices, mushroom slices, onion slices, and capers onto each swai fillet. Fold foil over each swai fillet creating a packet. Place packets on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:

  • Foil packets could also be cooked on the grill!
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
