Grilled Swordfish Steaks with Fennel and White Peach Salad and Garlicky Red Wine Vinaigrette

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The swordfish is marinated with fresh mint, hand-picked from my garden, and high-quality extra virgin olive oil to enhance its rich, meaty flavor before its grilled. The garlic, lemon, and mustard add extra flavor to the unique marinade.

The salad on top of the fish has the juiciest summer white peaches. White peaches are a sweeter, subtler version of the classic yellow peach. I paired them here with crunchy, refreshing shaved fennel and pickled red onion (recipe here). This easy salad is all tossed together with a bright mustardy dressing made with a slightly sweet and tart wine vinegar base and minced garlic cloves. This is a perfect summer dish and you can begin this meal with my favorite frozen bellini!
