~Grilled Swordfish~

Daffodils facing the sun!
The bright yellow Daffodils are blossoming in our front cut-out!  Golden forsythias stand out in our backyard.  It's Spring and yesterday it felt mighty fine to be outdoors without a jacket!  Yes, I did write without a jacket!  Another quick look into our backyard and our grill is spotted.  It's been a tease during the harsh winter months just sitting on the side of our deck - covered - waiting to be used.   

Yesterday, the lid of the shiny grill was opened and a Swordfish Steak was placed on the grill.  Swordfish has been a fave of mine way back from my childhood.  The only way my mom prepared it was using the broiler.  However, I've learned that Grilled Swordfish is absolutely delicious!  And it requires little clean-up after dinner.

I've posted my method for grilling Swordfish in the past.  After totally enjoying this grilled fish along with a veggie salad & a microwaved "baked" potato, I decided to share it once again.  So good!

Grilled Swordfish

1 lb. Swordfish Steak
Olive Oil
Paprika - about 2 shakes from the bottle

  1.  Preheat outdoor grill.
  2.  Pour about 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil on a large dish.
  3.  Sprinkle a little Paprika on top of Olive Oil.
  4.  Rinse Swordfish Steak under cold running water.
  5.  Place on Olive Oil/Paprika in dish.
  6.  Turn Swordfish over to coat other side.
  7.  Place on heated grill and put grill cover down.
  8.  Grill for 7 minutes and 30 seconds.  
  9.  The fish is turned over & grill other side for 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
 *** The amount of needed grilling time depends on the size of the piece of Swordfish Steak and the grill.  Using our gas grill turned up 3/4 heat a 1 lb. piece requires 7 minutes and 30 seconds on each side.  The cover is down while grilling.

Do you enjoy grilled seafood?

We'll have to try this. We eat fish about once a week but I always pan fry it. We had tilapia tonight and it was delicious with fresh lemon squeezed on top! Enjoy your weekend my friend.
