Swordfish is a favorite fish, I love cooking it to celebrate an occasion! It is light, flakey and does not have too much of that “seafood” flavor. I always recommend it to my friends who are only just beginning to experiment with trying out new fish.
This meal is truly delicious, it has all of those Italian notes and features forbidden black rice which is SO good for you!
