Swordfish is not like other fishes – rich and meaty, it’s almost hard to believe you’re eating seafood! I had only ever tried swordfish in restaurants, thinking that it would be much too difficult to prepare at home. Luckily, I was wrong! Swordfish cooked at home can be on the table in only a few minutes. Summer is the best time to catch swordfish at its freshest. For a few short weeks harpoon-caught swordfish comes to us from a Nova Scotia fishery certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council.

Summer is so full of fresh fruit that it’s hard to decide just which one to snack on. Unless the sweet cherries have come in! We always pick up a bag of juicy dark-red cherries for the family to share, and it’s one of my son’s favorite fruits to eat. He loves helping prep them by pulling off the stem and handing them to me for the pitting. It’s not long before we’ve worked through half the bag and splattered cherry juice all over the kitchen table. The sweet fruit makes it worth a little mess, though! Cherries are delicious in a variety of dishes, from classic pie to savory scallops.

I’m one of those people who love soup year-round. It’s not only easy to make, but amazingly customizable, ultra comforting and of course, the perfect thing to dip crusty bread into. So when summer’s temperatures start creeping up, it doesn’t stop me from whipping up a batch of soup – cold soup, that is! If you’ve never tried a cold soup before, you’re in for a treat. The most traditional cold soup, gazpacho, is made from the best that summer has to offer: juicy ripe tomatoes and crisp cucumbers. More than any salad, it’s summer in a bowl. Ready to get refreshed?
