Paired with the acidity and freshness of the gremolata, and the salty, porky crunch of the coppa, this simple grilled swordfish takes you on a virtual voyage to the Amalfi coast.

INGREDIENTS
  • THE GREMOLATA:
  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS

1

Mix all the gremolata ingredients together until well combined. Set aside.
2

Light grill to medium heat. Season swordfish with salt. Grill with lid closed 5-6 minutes per side until swordfish has reached an internal temperature of 130 degrees. Let rest for 5 minutes before plating.
3

While swordfish is resting, render thinly sliced coppa in a pan until very crispy.
4

To serve, put each swordfish fillet on a plate. Place a big spoonful of gremolata on top of the fish. Sprinkle the coppa all around.
