Rick Stein's wonderful grilled swordfish recipe with a salsa fresca of avocado, coriander, onion and cucumber.

Ingredients

  • 4 swordfish steaks, each weighing about 175g/6oz

  • olive oil for brushing

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • For the salsa

  • 1 green chilli, seeded and finely chopped

  • 1 avocado, cut into 5mm/¼in dice

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced

  • ½ cucumber, cut into 5mm/¼in dice

  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, roughly chopped

  • For the Sauce

  • 4 green olives

  • 4 heaped tbsp olive oil mayonnaise

  • 50ml/2fl oz double cream

  • 120ml/4fl oz water

Method

  • 1.

    Keep all the prepared salsa ingredients cold, and separate until just before serving, then quickly mix them together in a bowl and divide between 4 plates.

  • 2.

    Cut the olive flesh from the stone in strips then cut these strips into thin pine needle sized shards. In a small pan, mix the mayonnaise, cream and warm water with the olive shards then warm through - the sauce should be served warm not hot.

  • 3.

    Light the barbecue or heat a ribbed grill pan. Season the swordfish steaks with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side.

  • 4.

    Serve with a portion of salsa and some of the sauce spread over the steaks and around the plates.

Made this last weekend. Very nice indeed. Cooked the swordfish on the BBQ which gave it a lovely smokey flavour. The salsa really compliments the dish too. Will definitely make this one again!

Made this last weekend and it was just lovely. I cooked the swordfish on the bbq which gave it a nice smokey flavour too. Very simple to make but very tasty. The salsa has such a fresh flavour. Will do this one again!
