Grilled swordfish with mango salsa

gsms1bMy perfect summer vacation involves beaches. Ideally, a sandy Mediterranean beach with a little feet-in-the-water tavern serving fresh salads and grilled fish.

I find that swordfish is a fantastic fish to grill. Lightly brushed with olive oil and topped with fresh oregano and lemon juice… you just can’t beat that! I’d spend my summer eating grilled swordfish if I could. Unfortunately, fish is becoming increasingly expensive.

gsms5bThankfully, there’s plenty of amazing local produce to accompany this treat.

Fruit, however, is not a usual combination. Which is a shame, if you ask me. A nice fresh fruit salsa pairs very well with grilled fish, chicken or pork, if you’re willing to give it a chance.

gsms4bServes 2

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 swordfish steaks, about 100g / 3.5 oz. each
  • ½ mango, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 shallot, thinly diced
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely diced
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • A handful coriander/cilantro or mint leaves, chopped
  • Baby salad leaves, to serve

In a small bowl, toss together the mango, shallot, chilli, lime zest and juice and coriander. Set aside.

Brush the fish with the oil and season.

Heat a griddle pan or barbeque, and cook the fish for 3 minutes on each side, until charred and just cooked through.

Serve the grilled fish immediately, topped with the salsa and a side of fresh baby salad leaves.

  1. What a lovely idea, and how nice and colourful presentation! Do you think that basil and cantalupa melon instead of coriander and mango would do as well?
