Swai Fish & Orange Dish

In order to fight Obesity, we try to cook at home as often as we can and the weekly menu has to consist of all types of meats and swai fish fillets are one of them. Since we have an orange tree that produces many oranges yearly, we create an orange – swai fish fillet dish that’s easy, quick to cook and very tasty.

Ingredient: 6 swai fillets (3lbs) (2×1.5lbs packages ~$8-10), ginger, garlic salt, brown sugar, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, mung bean, sesame oil and oranges.

Close the lid and turn on low heat and wait for about 10 minutes. When the sauce is boiling then put some mung bean on top, make sure they soak in the sauce. Wait for a few minutes when the fish fillets are done, the mung bean turned brown due to the sauces and cooked, remove and eat with rice or just mung bean alone.
