Grilled Swordfish

Ok…I am a fake. This grilled swordfish recipe from Reel Flavor looked so amazing, but I didn’t have any swordfish just laying around. I don’t even know where you get swordfish. Can you just get from the regular grocery store? I suppose I could have gone to my local Central Market…


In any case, I did have some mahi mahi fillets stocked in the freezer and I figured those would do the trick. It actually may have been tuna, judging by the pictures. Haha. The flavour of this was delicious! It was great to have a quick seasoning, plus the marinade. And continuing to marinade while cooking is sometimes essential, especially in this case!


So simple and delicious – you could grill this tonight!
