Grilled Swordfish



I've only eaten swordfish at a restaurant before, so when I saw
it at the grocery, and on sale, I thought I'd give it a try!

Just brush with olive oil and sprinkle with 
kosher salt, garlic powder, onion powder
and dill.  Grill 6 minutes per side...just until
it is no longer translucent in the middle.
A little extra olive oil and fresh basil on top
are optional but yummy...and pretty!

    1. Very mild...almost like a pork chop!

    2. Very much like that...but even less fishy. The texture is like a tuna steak, though.

    2. Fish don't do me any good which is why I don't eat them.

    1. I don't know....the chips might burn by the time the center of the fish was done.

      Do you have a grill pan? That would work, too.

    1. They didn't sell me the nose!
      Why, Goodness knows!
      Would have been a cool thing.
      Maybe to use as wall bling!

  9. Hey, your swordfish looks really great! Maybe even better than the one I had in Florida last week, though I'm thinking you can't match the ambiance of eating outdoors, overlooking the water on a clear, 76 degree night.

    2. Yes, she did, but it probably doesn't taste anything like swordfish.

    3. No, it would taste like chicken. :)

    4. Chicken feathers maybe, or stuffing.

    5. HEY!
      Thanks you 2 ♥️
      Stuffing.....for sure!!

  11. Oh my, that looks incredibly good! I have never had swordfish... don't know why because I love fish, but just never tried it. Perhaps that should be my next Fun Fresh Fish Foray!
