I know we should not eat a lot of swordfish because of the mercury level but occasionally it is a delicious fish to cook.  If you buy your fish frozen, like I did, place the frozen swordfish on a wire rack over a plate and let the swordfish defrost in the refrigerator.  This keeps the fish from sitting in its juices.  You’re three ingredients away from a great dish.  Happy creating.


2 Swordfish steaks

Olive oil

1 tsp. All-purpose spice rub


Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Place the swordfish in the pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes, turn and finish.  Keep checking the fish to make sure you don’t over cook it.

Serve with Sautéed Squash and top with Yellow Mango Salsa.
