Swordfish Two Ways

Swordfish

Swordfish is a one-of-a-kind bite. Sold exclusively as steaks, its meat-like texture makes it ideal for searing, stewing, baking, and of course, grilling!

Our Seafood Department proudly offers wild-caught swordfish. It’s protein-rich and loaded with healthy fats like omega-3’s, vitamins like B12 and niacin for brain health, and selenium, a vital nutrient for fighting free radicals.

Swordfish is delicious when paired with both sweet and savory accompaniments:

Grilled Swordfish and Mango Salsa

Ingredients:

Mango Salsa
1 whole mango, peeled, pitted & sliced
1 small red onion, peeled & diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 jalapeño, diced (optional)
Main Dish
8 oz wild rice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large carrot, peeled & diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 medium shallot, peeled & diced
1 1/2 lbs swordfish, cut into 4 steaks
1/2 pineapple, cored & sliced into rings
Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions:
1. Mix all salsa ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add jalapeños for heat, if desired. Chill until ready to serve.
2. Cook the wild rice according to package directions.
3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Sauté the carrots, celery and shallots. When the vegetables are translucent, add the cooked wild rice and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until rice is warm.
4. Set the grill to medium-high heat. Grill the swordfish and pineapple for 5 to 8 minutes (flipping halfway through). When done, swordfish should flake easily with a fork. Grill the pineapple just until you get some good grill marks on each side.
5. Scoop rice onto four plates, top with grilled swordfish and a dollop of mango salsa. Garnish with grilled pineapple.
