I love swordfish. The fish obviously, and the movie! I love it because it’s so easy to cook and yet so delicious. If you’re in a hurry one evening, and want to create a funky recipe, that presents very well on a plate, and taste delicious, try this one:
Prepare a salsa. Usually, I dice cucumbers and peeled tomatoes, chopped some spring onions and cilantro, mix all this with a tiny bit of jalapeno pepper and garlic. I sprinkle the mixture with some olive oil and lemon juice (or lime juice). You can actually also buy it all ready, but it tastes so much better when you do it yourself!
Rub the swordfish with salt and pepper (lot of salt actually!). On high heat, grill each side for 2-3 minutes, until it gets brown. Then reduce the heat to medium, and continue to cook until the fish is cooked in the inside, but not dry. There must still be some juices coming out of it! Times vary based on the size of the fish, but it could take another 10-15 minutes.
To serve, put some salsa in the middle of the plate, and add the fish on top of it.
