Swordfish Recipe with Avocado Mango Salsa

ingredients for stir-fry swordfish recipe and avocado mango salsa

 

Before summer comes to an official close, I thought I’d share one of my favorite summer recipes. Typically prepared on the grill, I have brought this version inside to cook up on my new stir-fry pan, which I’m obsessed with by the way (thank you Mom).

With a few minor adaptations, this May to September swordfish recipe is something I’d be happy to whip up when the weather is cooler, but I’m still in the mood for something light and refreshing.

Summer, winter, spring or fall; this swordfish recipe with mango avocado salsa is super easy and really tasty. Guests love it and it always makes a great impression when served.

When I’ve prepared this on the grill, I marinate the fish in oil, lime, juice, salt, pepper and even a splash of tequila. However, in the stir-fry pan I prefer to keep the fish dry so it can brown nicely – so just salt and pepper for today’s version.

The Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pound swordfish, cut into cubes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large avocado, cubed
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup mango (in summer I use fresh, but this time I used precut, frozen and it was delish)
  • ¼ cup chopped Italian parsley (original recipe calls for cilantro – I had parsley in)
  • Juice of 1 lime, more if you like
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A dash of red pepper flake for a kick

Directions

First prepare the salsa by combining the avocado, mango, onion, parsley, lime, salt, pepper and pepper flake in a bowl. Mix gently so not to break the mango or avocado. The frozen mango held up so beautifully, I may actually prefer it.

Heat stir-fry pan on stove top and lightly oil. Sprinkle swordfish with salt and pepper and toss in the pan. It cooks through and browns so quickly, you’re done before you know it!
