The coconut oil gave it it great light taste! My husband said it was the best fish! You can use tilapia too, just cut down the cooking time as it's a much smaller fillet. The swai fillets was much bigger and 2 fed us both quite well! Serve with lemon.

  • Combine cornstarch and flour on a separate plate, mixing with a fork. Beat egg in a shallow bowl.

  • Preheat an electric skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) or over medium-high heat; add coconut oil.

  • Pat swai fish dry with a paper towel. Press fillets, 1 at a time, in the flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip each fillet in the egg, allowing excess to drip back onto plate; press into stuffing mixture until evenly coated.

  • Cook fillets in the hot coconut oil until lightly browned and fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

I used breadcrumbs instead of stuffing. Ground it fine with pecans and cheese. Worked out fine. Really liked it. Read More

Crunchy crust and a nice mild fish. Great recipe. Made it with the spicy garden coleslaw and it was a perfect meal. Read More

This was super good! The title however is a little misleading. The parm is not dominant and the 2 tablespoons kind of get lost in the mix so don't count on a strong parm flavor. It is however a great recipe and one I will make again. Read More

Simple and tasty! Used sole: nicely complements a mild fish. Used low salt stuffing mix. Excellent idea to dry fish fillets before dipping in flour. Because we had multiple fillets I made the stuffing coating mix in smaller batches to keep it dry. Needed to fry them on a lower temperature (gas stove) or the coating overcooked before the fish was done. Can be fried in batches and kept warm in the oven. Read More
