This is a super yummy meal. My hubby and I ate every last bite for supper tonight. Basa is a very tasty fish and a new favorite for both of us! This was really very delicious.

The Basa fish is actually from Vietnam and is a type of Catfish… in case you were wondering! The fish recipe, actually has 5 or less ingredients….I’ve made it with lemon slices or with tomato slices and both ways were good. 🙂
