Floridian Foodie Series - Grilled Swordfish

Yum
Years ago my brother in law introduced us to swordfish.


Can you imagine catching one of those?
I have a simpler solution...go to your favorite fish monger and get one there.  Probably a lot easier, don't you think?

We actually have a great fish monger in our area and try to get some swordfish once in awhile.  My brother in law made a recipe using swordfish that was phenomenal!  So that's the recipe I use.  Again, simple ingredients and your grill!



Ingredients:
4 swordfish steaks
1/4 cup olive oil
4 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
4 Tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp brown mustard

In a shallow pan, whisk together the olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar, minced garlic and brown mustard.  Add the swordfish steaks and marinade 3-5 minutes per side.  Then grill!  You will know when they are done when they feel firm in the middle.



The swordfish steaks have such a good flavor.  They are light and not fishy at all!  This recipe even works with Mahi Mahi.  Our tradition is to serve the swordfish with hush puppies...another Florida favorite.

So if you have a craving for seafood and want the flavors of Florida...Swordfish is the way to go!  Thanks to my brother in law for sharing!!!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
