Smoked Swordfish With An Herbs de Provence Coating!

Discussion in 'Fish' started by leah elisheva, Oct 18, 2013.

  1. Well here’s some very “Fabulous Friday Food & Mood Grand Cheer,” and to You All!

    My lunch today, of smoked swordfish, rubbed in Herbs de Provence spices as a dry rub first, (and smoked for 15 minutes), was simply OFF-THE-CHARTS or quite exceptionally good!

    The fish itself just oozed apart, and with a moist sensation that seemed impossible to readily believe.

    The aromatic herbs lent just enough of a special “something,” as well as some crunch, to present great contrast between the rare and soft middle and the more cooked outer edges and savory crisp swordfish skin!

    And while my “creature of habit” or simple dashing Dijon salad, just seems to find its way into my rotation again and again; well, when something works? I guess I just have it a lot!

    Paired with French White Burgundy that was crisp, cold, dry, and enchanting, I am simply, and admittedly so, in love with my little humble lunch, and so I figured I’d share.

    Please make the start to your weekend absolutely delicious!!!!

    Cheers and warm wishes, LeahEndFragment

    I do have a crush on the ocean, and admittedly so! (Although God Bless a great big NY Strip Steak of Wild Boar, or a bone-in rack of luscious elk chops, and so much more)! Delicious stuff!

    That head of lamb was looking sensational! So much on this website is just amazing!

    But yes, here's some great coastal CHEER, and sent out today!!!!!!! - Leah

  8. So kind!!! Thanks!!!! I have to order the racks of elk but can find the boar locally, or usually anyway, and that's a treat! Your Dad's boat must have been such a joy, and with the freshest fish right out of the water! That's sensational! Cheers! - Leah
