Healthy Recipe: Swordfish with Roasted Lemons
Swordfish with Roasted Lemons
2 lemons, quartered, seeds removed
1 tablespoon of sugar
¼ teaspoon sea salt
4 swordfish fillet, each 6 ounces
½ teaspoon canola oil
½ teaspoon chopped garlic
¼ cup chopped parsley
Heat oven to 375 F.
In a small bowl, add the lemon wedges, sugar, and salt. Toss gently to coat evenly. Place the lemons in a shallow baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Roast until soft and slightly brown, about 1 hour.
Heat the broiler (grill). Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray.
Place the fish fillets in the prepared pan. Brush with canola oil and top with garlic. Broil (grill) until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife, about 5 minutes on each side.
Transfer the fish to individual plates. Squeeze 1 roasted lemon wedge over each fillet and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with another roasted lemon wedge on the side.
