Swordfish Tacos…

Here’s a flavorful Swordfish Tacos recipe that’s good for anytime of year. Summertime is in full bloom and who wants to spend time cooking over the hot stove? Not me and I love to cook! Here’s a quick and easy Swordfish Taco recipe that is so tasty and filling but not to labor intensive to cook, and you’ll still have plenty of leisure time hanging outdoors enjoying the long summer days.

Swordfish is made for the grill. Is is always sold as steaks, and the meat is so firm and, well, meaty, that many non-fish eaters will gladly eat sword. This texture also helps prevent the steaks from falling apart on the grill, a huge plus. I marinated my Swordfish with lime juice, garlic, cumin, zest of the lime, salt and pepper and olive oil,throw them on the grill and proceed to make these yummy meaty tacos. I love Swordfish Tacos!

Happy Summertime…
