- 2 pounds Swai (That’s about 3 fillets.)
- 1 tbs lime
- 1 tbs Cottonmouth
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 tbs olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cast iron grill or actual BBQ grill
- 35 oz frozen french (='s 1 bag shoestring )
- 1/2 cup Velveeta
- 3 tbsp RED
- 1 cup tomato ( diced)
- 2 oz jalapeno ( ='s 1 jalap diced, deseeded for milder)
- 1/4 oz white onion ( diced)
- 1/4 cup cilantro diced
- 1/4 oz garlic (='s 1 clove chopped)
- 4 oz avocado
- 1/4 tsp salt
Swai Construction (actually do this 2nd)
- However you want to grill. It’s a pretty firm fish. I used a cast iron grill pan.
- Heat grill pan to medium high.
- Rub olive oil, salt, and Cottonmouth all over you fish fillets.
- Lightly spray pan or grill and lay in the fish. Using a grill pan I could only cook 1 at a time so that’s why I say do this part 2nd.
- The fillets were thick so I did 4 minute flip, 4 minute flip, and final 3 minutes.
- Plate them up.
The Rest of Build
- Since you can’t buy ¼ of an onion a lot of the above ingredients on all the recipes will likely involve buying whole using an amount of it.
- Save a dash of cilantro for garnish.
- So take all of these: 1 cup tomato, 1 jalapeno, ¼ onion, 1 cup cilantro, 1 garlic clove, 1 dash of salt, and throw in a bowl. Mix well and let sit. Boom pico in the making!
- Bake shoestring fries like the bag says. Think it’s about 20-25-minutes.
- In another bowl put 4 ounces of diced Velveeta and 1 ounce of milk. (you can add RED or spices)
- Cook in microwave for 30 seconds, check, and stir. Rinse and repeat until cheese is smooth.
- Finish off the plate to the top. Fish, pico on top of it. Fries, queso on top of them, then Salsa on top of that. Add avocado and you’re good to go!

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.
If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
