Directions

  1. Prepare swordfish by brushing with olive oil, salt and pepper; pieces can be cooked whole or cut into 2-inch slices and cooked individually, chef’s choice.
  2. Fire up the grill or heat up a cast iron pan. Cook 5 minutes per side.
  3. Prepare, chop all ingredients. The ingredients can be placed in separate bowls for a make-your-own taco or the chef can prepare tacos (Best served flat in that case).
  4. Throw the tacos on the grill or pan for a minute or two so they are warm and pliable.
  5. Assemble as you choose.

Serve with lime wedges, sprinkle with cilantro. A margarita might just do the trick to complete the meal.
