A Winter Snow Day OOTD
January 25, 2021
Does anyone still feel stuffed from all of those holiday feasts? Seriously, I love me a good turkey and a delicious Christmas feast, but I feel like it’s just about time for some lighter fare. These spicy baked swai packets are stuffed with tasty Asian flavors that won’t leave you feeling overly stuffed!
Fish packets are a super easy way to infuse a lot of delicious flavor into your fish without adding too many extra calories and fat like you would if you sautéed the fish in butter. (Which is also super delicious, just fyi.) Plus you just throw them in the oven, giving you some time to prepare a quick side dish while the fish cooks.

These fish packets are filled with all of my favorite Asian flavors, including soy sauce, ginger and garlic. These flavors are paired with a bit of grated carrot and then the fish is folded up in a parchment paper packet and baked for 15 minutes.
While the fish bakes, you can throw together the sauce, which gives a spicy kick to the dish by using gochujang and hoisin. Fresh green onions finish off the dish.
