My children really love eating fish and often request it for dinner. My husband has a Traeger Pellet Grills and does a wonderful job smoking the fish for 30 minutes to defrost the fish and then BBQs the fish for another 30 minutes and what we have is a delicious, fork tender fish dinner.
BBQ Swai fish with Risotto and fresh Corn
• 5 Swai Fillets (Swai is a white-flesh fish (typically available in fillet form) with a sweet mild, taste and light flaky texture)
• 6 Garlic Cloves, minced
* 1/4 cup Kinders BBQ‘s Brown Sugar Barbecue Rub.
Leave fish frozen — coat with garlic and BBQ Rub. Smoke for 30 minutes to defrost. Then BBQ at 300º for 30 minutes. The BBQ temp will fluctuate over the 30 minutes.
Creamy Parmesan Risotto
I used Lundberg Family Farms brand Creamy Parmesan Risotto for our rice tonight.
In a heavy 2 qt. saucepan, sauté rice in ½ Tbsp. olive oil over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add 2½ cups water and contents of seasoning pouch. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cook uncovered for 20 minutes stirring occasionally until rice is tender. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese is desired. Serve piping hot.
I used 4 corn ears that I used my Corn Cob Stripper to take the kernels off the ear. I seasoned the corn with garlic and spices with a pat of butter.
