Basa with walnuts - lower carbs

Submitted by: SMBRYCE1

Introduction

This dish is high in omega 3's. Basa is a white fish I had never tried, but it was recommended to me by the butcher and I'm always interested in trying new fish since it is high in nutrients that my body needs. It is inspired by a recipe they had at the store, but their recipe was high in carbs as it included rice. Another mad scientist adventure in kitchen witchery. In the original dish the walnuts and parsley were mixed in with rice cooked in chicken stock. This dish is high in omega 3's.

    I love basa, it's also known as Vietnamese catfish. I recently started buying it as well and it's a nice large fish, bigger than Tilapia, so it's a bigger fillet. I love to just broil it seasoned with Tony Chachere's, but this recipe looks great. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to tree nuts. - 11/6/10

    I would recommend doing this without the walnuts and add a little balsamic, also delicious!

  • This was very tasty - followed recipe as written. We had it with oven-baked cassava and veggies (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots cooked in a little sesame oil and thyme). - 3/1/11
