Okay, I have some reservations about posting this, since you guys lit up my buddy Fetz about his fish pics a few posts ago. Maybe it was the breadsticks that drew your ire?? Maybe mine will be acceptable since I have evidence of substantial fire under mine?? Anyway, here was tonights "lazy and fast" cook.
I did a couple of swordfish steaks for the wife and I and a piece of salmon for the boys. I thought it best to hedge my bets with something i know they like, rather than argue to get them to eat the swordfish (which they ended up liking anyway). For the fish, I blended the following in the magic bullet:
A few Tbsp EVOO
About the same amount of lemon juice
about half as much light soy
a teaspoon or two of dijon mustard
a few cloves of garlic
about 10 basil leaves from the garden
A sprig of oregano from the garden
I poured it over the fish and let it marinate about 45 minutes, while i lit the grill, and got the rest of dinner ready. Once the grill was searing hot, I grilled them for about 4-5 mins per side, until done. After flipping, i spooned some of the marinade mixture back on the cooked side.
This was a nice layer of flavors for the swordfish. I usually just hit them with coarse salt and pepper, and cook them just like a steak, but this was a nice change. Served over a salad - the healthiest meal i have had in ages
And this...is the first post from my 4 year old. The camera was on the table between us, and he decided he needed to take a picture of his plate too. Enjoy. I'll see if I can coach him on his technique and the use of macro
