  • 2 tbsp (2 g) chopped fresh cilantro leaves

How to make Grilled Swordfish In Citrus-Herb Sauce

  1. To make the citrus sauce, combine the olive oil, lime juice, lemon juice, coconut aminos, cilantro, mint, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes in a bowl. Mix well. Set the sauce aside.
  2. Prepare a grill or a grill pan by heating it over medium-high heat. Pat the swordfish steaks dry and season them with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. When the grill/grill pan is hot, brush it with 1 tablespoon (13 ml) of ghee. Add the swordfish steaks to the hot grill/grill pan. Cook the fish for 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on how thick your steak is. Remove the fish from the pan and set it aside to rest. Brush the other tablespoon (13 ml) of ghee onto the grill/grill pan. Grill the bell pepper for 5 to 8 minutes, or until the pepper pieces begin to blister and soften.
  4. Pour the citrus sauce over the fish and pepper pieces, and serve with lemon slices.
