Cooking With Sensei – Swordfish

Sensei Iavarone cooking swordfish
 
Its time to change it up a little with some grilled swordfish instead of the usual suspects like chicken or beef.  If you’ve never had swordfish, you definitely should try it. Swordfish is delicious! It has a very clean taste to it and when cooked right basically flakes apart. It really is one of the best fish to grill during the summer and with minimal preparation too.  Since swordfish is rich and flavorful it will pair well with grilled vegetables.  
 

 

Simple & Easy Swordfish

First, prepare the grill and set it to a medium-high heat. I chose to do a simple marinade with some fresh herbs and extra virgin olive oil. To begin, whisk olive oil, mint, lemon juice, basil, and garlic in a medium bowl to blend. Then season the lemon and olive oil mixture with salt and pepper, to taste. Brush the swordfish steaks with 2 tablespoons of the lemon and olive oil mixture.
 
Grill the steaks until just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side (depending on thickness of steaks). Transfer the steaks to plates. Spoon the remaining sauce over and serve.
