Grilled Swordfish with Salsa Verde


1 lb Swordfish

1/2 cup plus 2T Olive Oil

Handful of Basil

1 Scallion

1 Sprig of Rosemary

1 Shallot

Juice of 1 Lemon

Juice of 1/2 Lime

Salt & Pepper


  1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat.  Coat the Swordfish with 2T olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a food processor, pulse to combine the basil, scallion, rosemary, shallot and lemon and lime juices.  While the machine is running, add the 1/2 cup olive oil in a steady stream.  Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until the fish is done.
  3. Place the swordfish on the grill.  Cook for about 4 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the second side (the cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fish).
  4. Serve the salsa over the fish.
