Ingredients

1
lb. one-inch thick slice of fresh swordfish
3 Tbsp
safflower oil, for high temperature cooking
freshly ground black pepper
1
lb. tuna fillet

SAUCE OF CREAM/MAYO/CILANTRO

1 c
loosely packed cilantro, snipped,stems removed
3 Tbsp
mayonnaise
1/4
heavy cream, cold
freshly ground black pepper
ground garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pat the fish dry first, and brush with oil. Place fish in a grilling basket, oil each side of fish again.
Over the very hottest coals, brown the fish on each side, turning occasionally to cook evenly.
2
We like it browned, so for a 1" thick slice of Swordfish, I cooked it 5 minutes on each side. My Tuna was thicker, and it was not over-cooked. My husband's Swordfish was done to perfection for him, but you might like to check it sooner.
3
To make sauce: place Cilantro, cream and mayo in blender and pulse a minute or two, add juice of one lime and a little ground garlic and black pepper to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
