Grilled Basa marinated in lemon garlic served on a bed of delicious puree and scattered cherry tomatoes. Doesn’t that sound appetizing!

It is devoid of the ‘fishiness’ that is present is some varieties of seafood. Its flaky meat and firm texture along with its appeal in mass markets has begun to challenge other catfish and give them a run for their money.

Basa fillets are moderately high in fat but are an excellent source of Protein, Omega 3 Fatty Acids minus any carbohydrates.
