I try to incorporate plenty of fish in my diet. It can be tough because my husband is not a big seafood fan. I could eat it every day!

He prefers milder tasting fish and lucky for him swordfish fits his expectations.

What does grilled swordfish taste like?

I would describe it as firm and meaty. Swordfish steaks are perfect for the grill because it keeps its texture and doesn't fall apart when cooking. It has a slightly sweet, mild flavor. It's delicious prepared with a summer fruit salsa.

We enjoy swordfish plucked fresh out of the ocean when we visit my folks who live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. And we eat it whenever we can.

But back in Ohio I buy it frozen and let it thaw in the refrigerator until I'm ready to use it.

For this recipe, I mixed together a summer fruit salsa of peaches, tomatoes and avocados and tossed it with lime juice and fresh herbs from the garden.

The height of summer brings out the full flavor of peaches and tomatoes, a perfect topping for this fish.

So delicious!

Grilling this fish is easy. You just drizzle on a little olive oil, salt and pepper and grill it like a filet mignon, about 6–7 minutes per side and it's done. Be careful not to overcook it.

Serve this swordfish on a bed of greens with a chilled rosé. It's the perfect meal and glass of wine to enjoy on the patio.
