Priya’s Keto Spicy Basa Fish

This weekend I decided to try my hand at cooking Keto Spicy Basa Fish (Cat Fish) . Where I live it is sold as frozen fillets that have been imported from Thailand and Vietnam.

It is also called as swai, bocourti and pangasius in some regions. Cat fish is a wonderful fish, as you will be shocked to know that it has zero carbs in it. What could be more wonderful? Basa is also very rich in protein and can be easily added to a Ketogenic diet. Since it is not very high in calories, it can be had in large quantities. The fish can be cooked by several methods.

Today I have made it in an Indian spicy style. Very few ingredients were required and the fish turned out to be absolutely delicious. All you need to do is ensure that the fish is fresh.

Tip: The recipe might seem very hot, but in fact the amchoor or dry mango powder is successful in cutting down the spice level to a large extent.
