Savor the Aroma of Pan Fried Swai with Indian Spices.
For the last 10 days, I have had a case of mommy’s time out going on. Not in the way that you might think, with me taking a vacation or a must needed rest. My time out has come from a new attitude to my fitness and health. I have decided to take a vacation from eating less than healthy food. I’ve totally cleaned up the way I eat, and it has payed off big time for me in so many ways. This pan fried swai with Indian spices fits right into my clean eating mood. In a word, it is delicioso!
I am not a fan of fish normally. But it is calling my name lately. Just waiting for me to do something special with it. I don’t care for fishy tasting dishes, so when I prepare fish, I like it to have a lot of other flavors. Those flavors come today with a wonderful blend of Indian spices. I am really fond of Indian cuisine, and so is my husband.
The dish starts with the fish getting a new wardrobe and color. This comes from using Kiva sweet smoked paprika, ground cumin seed and turmeric….and a good dash of Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to boot. It dresses up that plain white coat into something so much more vibrant. Just look at the difference in color after the rub. And that is before it’s cooked!
Don’t you just love easy to prepare dishes that are on the table in a flash? A quick pan fry for a few minutes each side, and you will have an aromatic and beautifully presented fish to serve. Add a steamed vegetable (I’m having a broccoli love affair right now) and a tossed salad and you will give new meaning to the term “Mommy’s time out.”
And what could be better to serve with this delicious meal than a bottle of Garganega Pinot Grigio wine from Mommy’s Time Out Wines? (dontcha just love the connection?) This Italian wine is delicate and fruity with a long lasting finish. It is quite a dry wine, and pairs beautifully with this dish.Swai is very low in calories, just like any white fish is, so we had a huge helping of this delicious fish. It was so tasty and the spices don’t overpower the delicate flavor of the fish. My husband is from the UK and Indian food is very popular there, but he thought this rivaled many Indian fish dishes that he had eaten. Quite a great compliment for such an easy recipe. I can’t take credit for much, though. It’s the blend of spices that gives the dish its flavor.
Do you know someone who needs a little bit of Mommy’s time out? The wine that I chose comes beautifully presented for gift giving. Treat your favorite mommy to a time out soon!
