Grilled Swordfish with Citrus Marinade

I like to make little salads to pair with fish dishes to lighten them up. Cut your favorite greens (kale, spinach, chard) into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl. Add a bit of sea salt, ground black pepper, citrus zest and juice, plus Saba (or balsamic vinegar) and brown butter and toss together.

Mix marinade ingredients together in a bowl and add fish. Place covered in the refrigerator to marinate 2 to 4 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high or prepare coals. Remove fish from marinade (which you can discard) and season with salt. Grill approximately 3 minutes on the first side. Reduce heat to low or move from direct heat, flip to the other side and grill another 3 minutes, depending on thickness of the swordfish steaks. A skewer or small knife should go through with ease.
