DS WLS healthy Swai (fish) recipe


I had a friend once who made chicken dish that was so rich it was a heart attack on a plate and I have not been able to bake with mayo on top of food without thinking of it since then.  They took a can of mushroom soup and a half cup of mayo and whisked the mixture together with white bread crumbs then spooned the crumbs on the chicken and then topped it with and half a stick of melted butter ….no spices cause well they would brag about being from the mid-west and somehow in their minds that meant no spice.

There was no way I would make that recipe but since this one has a bit of Miracle Whip it makes me think of it for some reason… mind you this is a much better version.

Swai with Almond Breading


3 medium sized Swai Filets (or two large ones)

2 tablespoons butter melted

1 tablespoon olive oil

teaspoon diced garlic

1-2 tablespoons Miracle whip (or any salad dressing or mayo but MW has the least amount of calories actually)

1/3 cup Almond flour or meal (ground up almonds)

1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1/4 cup slivered almond lightly crushed

Lemon pepper



Melt the butter with the diced garlic and mix in the olive oil and miracle whip

Place the thawed fish in a oiled baking dish and lightly cover with the butter mixture

mix together the bread crumbs, almond meal and slivered almonds with lemon pepper and spoon over the mix

Place pan in a 350* and bake for 20 mins (more depending on the thickness of the fish)
