Saturday night, we went to North Pond (great place, by the way) and I had an amazing swordfish entree. Fast forward to today, I decide I want to try to grill swordfish for dinner. I did a little research online - mostly looking to see how long it would take to cook the fish on the grill - and if I needed any other type of oil (other than grape seed oil) for the grill. All the recipes I found referenced a swordfish fillet.
It has been a long time since I felt completely out of my element in the supermarket. I am lost at the fish counter. This guy was a jerk. I can easily see how people new to cooking can be intimidated. Food should bring people together not push them apart. We should be helping each other out when we try new recipes. If I wasn't relatively confident in the kitchen, I would have probably just walked away.
I ended up getting a couple steaks and plan on serving them with a bit of a tomato avocado salsa (maybe some mango too). I will document my progress and photo the product and hopefully will encourage you non-fish-eaters to try something new. And if I see the guy at fish counter again at Treasure Island, I'll just smile and be thankful he taught me something new today - but he's still a jerk.
Did you know a swordfish steak is the same as a fillet (is it??)? Have you always loved fish or is it something new for you? Do you have a favorite recipe? If so, please share!
