Swordfish is a favorite when it comes to fish, and people tend to love its unique texture and flavor. The swordfish is grilled in the following recipe and if you have a charcoal grill this will give it a great smoky taste. The salsa is easy to make and its sweet taste contrasts well with the savory fish. Feel free to include more chili if you like your salsa spicy. Use freshly squeezed lime juice for the best results.
It is important to bear in mind that swordfish is a lean fish, which means it can dry out if you overcook it, like tuna can. For this reason, keep a very close eye on it while it cooks. As soon as the swordfish is no longer glossy in the center it is cooked and further cooking will only dry it out.
So, what is best to serve with this dish? You could try a simple green salad or perhaps some green beans or broccoli on the side or maybe you want to make fries or potato wedges instead. If you are having a barbecue and cooking a variety of foods on the grill, then you could throw some vegetable kabobs or asparagus on there too, or even corn on the cob. Any of those would be great with this easy swordfish recipe.
