Day 2163 - Do You Swai? Swai Not?

Greetings, Bloggy Fishmongers!

Charlie and I tried 'Swai' fish for the first time the other night.

Bottom line - Swai is thumbs up, and we'll definitely have it again. The lady at the fish counter said she eats swai now instead of catfish.

Swai is somewhat similar to catfish, meaning a mild, flaky white fish. I noticed they have a thinner filet, a nice white-pinkish color and a texture between catfish and tilapia. It also didn't have a 'bottom dweller' flavor that catfish sometimes has, even when it's fresh.

Swai are native to Southeast Asia - Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia.

Swai are INEXPENSIVE - I paid $4.99/lb and it wasn't even a sale price!

In other words - Swai are Swell. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Swai--I'll have to try that if they import it this far!

A cloudy day after some snow/rain--temp is now 39 degrees, and the roads are pretty well sanded.

That was such a cute picture of Savi on FB--those little red cheeks are inherited from you know who!
Sounds good, I'll try it if I ever see it!
I'll definitely try it at that price! Awesome!! So I made a very sad discovery the other night. We are doing a biggest loser contest at work and I've been doing pretty well with my diet...until these last 2 weeks. The change? I added my favorite veggie to my salad...avocados. Turns out they are VERY high in carbs and calories. I've been eating them daily and gaining away! Poo. I brought all my avocados into work today and gave them away. So sad.
