Recipe for :

Grilled Swordfish with Mango Salsa

This recipe comes from a web site called Simply Cooking run by Mark Stanton and featuring recipes he has created. Mark certainly understands what cooking is all about - doing your own thing and enjoying the challenge of creating your own dish. This is what he had to say (which is close to my own philosophy on enjoying cooking):

"I never like to stick to correct quantities of ingredients unless absolutely necessary - I try to create my own dishes rather than use other peoples. I think it is down to personal taste, experience and creativity, so most of the ingredients on my site are all guesses but good enough to make the dishes. So if it tastes like the bottom of an old boot you might want to try the dish again but with slightly more or less of certain ingredients. That's where the experience bit comes in, it might take me one or two attempts at a dish before I think that it tastes as good as I think it should but that's half the fun. So make sure you test it out first before serving it up to friends just in case!"

This is a really light summer type of dish with loads of colour, to cook the fish I used a gridle pan but for best results you could use a barbeque. I also added a few asparagus tips which were steamed and tossed in garlic butter.


2 Swordfish Steaks or fillets
Chives to garnish
1 Red onion
1 Mango
2 Green chilli pepper
1 Red pepper
Lime juice
Salt and pepper


  • To make the mango salsa simply finely chop the onion, mango, chilli, pepper and add a few drops of the lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  • Brush the swordfish both sides with a little olive oil and cook in a gridle pan until the fish has whitened and flakes easily with a fork.
  • Serve with the asparagus and salsa and garnish with chives.

Serves 2
