Chef John's Grilled Swordfish Bruschetta

Recipe by  

"There are two keys to this recipe. First, add enough oil and vinegar to your tomatoes to make a good amount of 'sauce' with which to douse the grilled fish and bread. Second, grill the bread very well over the coals. It should be golden brown with distinctive charred grill marks. The bitter hit from these stripes of charred bread actually makes the tomatoes even sweeter and more delicious."

Directions

  1. Stir tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, basil, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Let sit until flavors blend, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Brush bread slices with olive oil.
  3. Cook bread slices on the preheated grill until browned and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Brush swordfish steaks with grapeseed oil and season with salt and black pepper.
  5. Cook swordfish steaks on the preheated grill until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes per side.
  6. Divide bread slices between two plates and top each plate with 1 swordfish steak. Spoon 1/2 of the cherry tomato mixture over each steak.

This was awesome and delicious. I omitted the bread and served over a fresh bed of Arugula. I added thinly sliced red onions to the sauce and used both red and yellow cherry tomatoes. I used more cayenne pepper to my liking. I did not have any grape-seed oil so I grilled the swordfish on a lightly oiled (canola) grill. Before grilling, I seasoned the steaks with lemon, salt and pepper. I served this with the Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Scallops from this site. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
