Baked Basa Fillets with Garlic & Almonds



Recently I was talked into buying Basa Fillets….by a complete stranger in a supermarket….

He went on….and….on…..and…..on about them. Apparently Basa fillets make the most delicious Fish & Chips.

What the heck….I grabbed two bags…

I made a beautiful and yummy looking Breaded Basa Fillets for my children… bite and you could hear the crickets chirp….a reaction I am not used to.

After taking few bites myself I decided…..NOPE…..not the best Fried Fish I ever had….

Since I had another bag to deal with I decided to actually do the research and find out what is BASA fish.

…..apparently Basa fish is from the same family as Craw fish….I didn’t know that….did you?

Then I proceeded to look for recipe on how to make Basa fish taste good….majority recipes suggested to bake it….so I did.





I came up with a winning recipe for Baked Basa Fillets with Garlic Butter & Almonds… was DELICIOUS…no complains about this dish.
