Some people do not like to eat swai fish because it is quite smelly. But actually this fish has as much OMEGA 3 as the salmon, which is more expensive. If you want to eat swai fish, here are the recommended ways to remove its smelly odor.
- Fish which is still alive: Release the fish into the water in a basin or something like that, then add salt and a little of lime juice in the water. Leave it there for about 10-12 hours before cooking, the smell will be washed out.
- Fish pieces in the pack sold in the mall or supermarket: You should pay attention to the fish meat: if it is in dark yellow color, it means the fish is fresh. If the meat is brown or orange then the fish is not fresh.
