Given it was Labor Day weekend, we wanted to spend some QT with the grill – which is kind of silly because it’s not as though it’s going to be 5 degrees now that “summer is over.” But it was a good plan, since there was some deliciousness going on! This was a nice swordfish recipe that I got from Giada De Laurentiis and substituted lime for lemon because I thought it would go well with the rest of the flavors, and modified to serve just two. There was a lot of sauce left, so I think you could cut back the oil even further – we threw a lot out. Definitely a winner. Very filling with corn on the cob for a side.
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1.5 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
- 1 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 (5 to 6-ounces each) swordfish steaks
Prepare the grill (medium-high heat). Whisk the oil, mint, lemon juice, basil, and garlic in a medium bowl to blend. 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.
