Succulent Swordfish Recipes

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. These skillful harpooners target large, mature swordfish one-by-one, virtually eliminating the chance of catching other marine life or harming ocean habitat. Learn more in this previous blog post. It’s also the best time to enjoy this special fish because it pairs perfectly with peak seasonal product like juicy tomatoes and ripe summer squash. Want to give it a try?
