“This is pan-fried swordfish with a stoneground mustard sauce. We usually bbq our swordfish. My dh prefers his fish plain with just salt and pepper so when I can get him to eat them a different way, its a happy day for me. This is a lovely alternative that even my picky dh will eat. Another treat from Umberto Menghi's Seafood Cookbook.”
