Swordfish Veracruz Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Swordfish Veracruz which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 24 ounces (680 g) swordfish steaks
  2. cup (120 ml) ruby red grapefruit juice (I like to use fresh-squeezed.)
  3. teaspoon ground cumin
  4. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) oil
  5. cup (65 g) salsa verde

Cooking Instructions

Cut the swordfish into 4 servings and place on a plate with a rim.

Mix together the grapefruit juice and the cumin.

Reserve some marinade and pour the rest of it over the steaks, turning them to coat both sides.

Let the swordfish steaks sit in the grapefruit juice for 5 minutes or so.

Spray a large, heavy skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat.

When the skillet is hot, add the oil and then the fish.

Saute for 4 minutes per side.

Then pour in the reserved marinade and let the fish cook in it for another minute or two, turning once.

Place the fish on serving plates, top each serving with a tablespoon of salsa verde, and serve.
