Grilled Swordfish w/ Rose Romano’s Italian Peppers

Grilled Swordfish w/ Rose Romano's Italian Peppers

It was one of those nights. I just wanted an easy dinner I could throw on the table with minimal fuss, but I wasn’t in the mood for fast food or take out. I wanted something nourishing.

I had several packs of swordfish filets from Trader Joe’s in the freezer, and they looked good. But what to do with them??

Then my eyes landed on a jar of Rose Romano’s Italian Peppers in my pantry, the perfect condiment to a light fish dinner. I hopped online for swordfish grilling instructions. I had some swiss chard from the CSA in the fridge, and we always have rice in our pantry. Dinner was as good as done.

I defrosted the swordfish for few hours in the fridge. Then I brushed it with olive oil, sprinkled it with salt and pepper, and grilled it till it was just cooked through. A sprinkle of fresh lemon juice was the perfect finishing touch.

While the fish was grilling, I steamed the brown rice and sautéed my swiss chard. I removed the fish from the grill and plated it atop a bed of rice and sautéed swiss chard. I sprinkled it with fresh minced parsley and served it with a glass of dry red wine. It was the perfect summer dinner! Even the kids lapped it up!
