Slightly Sweet and Spicey Swordfish Stir Fry

March 5, 2014

Every once in a while my local Publix has swordfish “nuggets” These are the pieces that are left once  bigger quantities have been sold. They are perfect for a stir fry, since the nuggets are all different sizes.  Swordfish is such a great fish, light in flavor like many  filets, but meaty in texture. It picks up the flavor of anything you put on it, and is filling so a little goes a long way. It also pairs well with any vegetable, so if you don’t have zucchini on hand you can switch  it up in a variety of ways.

1 lb. swordfish, cut in 1 inch cubes

2 medium zucchini

1 large can pineapple chunks

3 T. soy sauce

1 lemon, juice and zest

2 T. Brown sugar

1 T. Simply Asia ginger garlic seasoning (you can sub 1t. ginger and 1 t. toasted sesame seeds for  this)

2 cloves garlic

1/2 t, red pepper flakes

In a container or Ziploc bag, combine juice and zest from half  the lemon, one grated garlic clove. 1 T. of soy, and  1T. of pineapple juice. Add in the fish and coat well. Allow to marinade for up to an hour,   but no more than two. Fish will start to “cook” if left in marinade too long. It  only take a little time for it  to absorb flavor.

In a separate bowl, combine the remaining pineapple juice drained from chunks, 2 T. soy, juice and zest from other half of lemon, 1 clove garlic grated, Asian seasoning, red pepper flakes  and brown sugar. Let sit while you prep your veggies. Cut zucchini however you like- I prefer two cuts length wise, and then in one inch slices.

Add a scant 1/2 t. of vegetable oil to a hot pan. Toss in  zucchini. I like it to brown a bit to add color and  natural sweetness.

Swordfish4

Pour off any juice from the swordfish. Add the swordfish to the zucchini and toss for about 2 minutes.

Swordfish5

Add in pineapple and pour on the sauce.

Serve over  rice, (this is a mix of brown and wild) orzo or quinoa!  A light but filling meal.
