Cook’s notes: We had swai fillets, but didn’t want to bake them in the oven or coat them in flour. This recipe combines two other recipes: The cooking instructions came from Livestrong. The sauce recipe came from Allrecipes.

Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add 2 Tablespoons of butter, and bring it to simmer over high flame.

Place the swai fillets in the hot oil without crowding the skillet. Turn the fillets as they brown, which should take between 3 and 5 minutes per side. Remove the fish from the skillet.

Add 1/4 cup white wine, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon dried cilantro, 1 teaspoon granulated garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper into the melted butter/oil mixture in the skillet; simmer sauce for 2 minutes.

Plate the fish; spoon the sauce over and serve warm with vegetables.
