    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.

    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.
