Cedar Planked Swai with Lemon Pepper

So...What's Swai? Swai is a river-dwelling catfish native to Asia. It's also called Pangasuis, Basa, and River Catfish. Swai has become a more popular fish option in North America in recent years because of its low price point ($2.00-$3.00/pound) and its tasty white flesh. I think it tastes a lot like catfish; better than tilapia. In short, it's a respectable fish, so we threw it on a plank and grilled it up, and grilled swai is pretty tasty! Here's what you need:



  1. Soak Wildwood Grilling Outlet Grilling Plank in hot water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat (350 degrees F) .
  3. Season swai fillets with lemon pepper and garnish with a lemon slice. Place seasoned fish on soaked plank.
  4. Place plank and fish on grill, close grill lid and allow fish to cook for about 8-10 minutes. Swai fillets are thin and delicate, so they don’t take very long to grill.
  5. Carefully remove from grill and enjoy!
