Don’t you just love summers at the grill? Family and friends gathered around, sharing stories about the ball game that day, the work week ahead and hopefully an upcoming summer vacation! The lingering daylight and the warm evenings keep you outside later than usual, soaking it all in!
I can’t think of anything better than fresh swordfish straight off the grates and slathered with a cucumber mint “salsa.” Loaded with flavor, the salsa gives your dish that “straight from the garden” flavor. In a matter of minutes, this Mediterranean main will be on your table.
I knew it was a successful dish when my 23 year old daughter said, “Great dinner, Mom!” Yes, success! Served with an arugula salad and a warm crusty loaf, this might just be your favorite summer meal. The combination of the cucumbers and mint gives the swordfish a freshness that makes you wish you made a little extra! Don’t forget a glass of a crisp, chilled white wine! With the aromas whirling through the summer air, you’ll have everyone waiting for the dinner bell to ring! Oh the joys of outdoor grilling!
Grill (or broil) swordfish until opaque in the center, depending on thickness, about 4- 5 minutes per side.
Salsa can be made 2 hours ahead and kept at room temperature.
