So recently I made some Swordfish Steak tacos with homemade guacamole or ” wallymolee ” as my 3 year old calls it. I searched the internet for a Swordfish Tacos Recipe and didn’t find too many that didn’t suggest the Swordfish to be grilled. Being winter here in the New England I wasn’t going to be able to grill it.
Here is the recipe that I MacGyverized with what I had available in the cupboard.
Prep time 30 minutes for both Guacamole and Swordfish Tacos
Cook time: 8 minutes
1lb Swordfish Steak
1 Red onion
1 medium sized vine tomato
2-3 cloves or garlic
TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 TBSP taco seasoning
1/4 teaspoon chili power
dash of paprika
3 TBSP Fresh medium or hot Salsa
Marinade for Swordfish Tacos
In a mixing bowl I combined the following ingredients
2TBSP of Taco Seasoning
1/4 Cup water
TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup diced vine tomato
1 1/2 limes worth of lime juice.
Dash of Salt and Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Chili power
Dash of paprika
I removed the skin from the swordfish steaks and cut into roughly 1 inch cubes. I added the swordfish to the mixing bowl with the marinade and tossed lightly. I covered and put in the fridge while I prepared the guacamole.
I preheated the oven to 400 before starting on the wallymolee.
Walleymolee a.k.a Guacamole
Two large ripe Avocados2 Cloves Garlic
1/4 cup diced tomato
1/4 diced red onion
Half Lemon worth of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Remove the skin and pits from two ripe avocados.
In a medium mixing bowl I added the garlic, 1/4 cup red onion and 1/4 cup diced tomatos, half lemon worth of lemon juice.
With the back side of a fork and mashed and stirred it all up into the wonderful wallymolee as my 3 year old calls it to have on our Swordfish Tacos.
With the guacomole ready and waiting I returned to the marinating swordfish steak. I dumped the swordfish out on the a baking sheet covered with tin foil and put two hefty table spoons of fresh medium salsa over the to top of it. Put in the oven for 8 minutes.
Upon taking it out I put the last Teaspoon of fresh salsa on it and tossed in a mixing bowl.
The finished product served with cheese, salsa, lettuce and fresh guacamole and a nice Margarita!
I am not a recipe guy per se. I more shoot from the hip. I realize that the formatting of the Swordfish Tacos Recipe may not be too traditional but it gets this point across.
