Grilled Swordfish with a side of Mushrooms

Grilled Swordfish Image

Every night I go through the same thing: “Honey, what do you want to eat for Dinner?” “Hmm…I don’t know, whatever you want” “But that’s why I’m asking…what is it that you want?” “Hmm…I don’t know…” This goes on for about 15 minutes, and then I decide to cook something fast. It usually ends up being the same thing.

So…I decided to make a meal plan for the week and it is actually working very well! Now, every night I know what to cook for dinner. We end up eating healthier and better! Plus, we enjoy having something new and tasty everyday. (You can get this week’s meal plan here.)

So here is what we had for dinner tonight, it is my family’s recipe: Enjoy!

  2. After 7 min,once they are cooked and have a brownish color, add the whiskey and continue cooking it for abour 4 minutes. And voila!

Swordfish

  1. Pour some olive oil in a medium sized pan (just enough for the fish not to stick on the pan), salt the fish and start grilling it.
  2. While the fish is cooking, cut the garlic and parsley into really small pieces (the smaller the better).
  3. Once the fish is grilled on both sides (that will take about 5 minutes in a medium fire), take the mix of garlic and parsley and carefully place it on top of the swordfish and serve.

Boom! It’s super easy and it takes around 15 minutes! Super healthy too!grilled swrdfish and mushrooms
