Looks like I get to be the first to review this one (forgive me if I missed another review). I made these for dinner tonight. Broiled instead of grilled b/c of the icky rain. DH and I *loved* them - and think this will be one of the few recipes that will actually get repeated in this house.
The marinade is a definite keeper. Very easy and so flavorful. I think you could easily reduce the oil a little without missing it. Not sure about the appearance, though (anyone remember the comments on Bree's Lentil soup - kind of had that gritty, orange kind of look).
I wasn't psyched about the poblano peppers, but they were good and not too spicy - and DH was so shocked to see me eat them since I detest green peppers. But these were good as were the grilled cherry tomatoes. The skewer with the fish, tomatoes and peppers was actually very pretty and I plan to make this for company when the weather gets warmer.
I served with the Asparagus with Browned Butter (3/02) and a rice pilaf (as suggested). A really great meal that I was proud to serve and feel confident recommending. Give it a try! [Did you like that sales pitch? ]
Thanks for the review, Catharine! I had marked this recipe to try. It's good to know that broiling it tastes just as good. I love to grill, but can't always rely on the weather to cooperate.
well, living in south florida, we can grill year-round!
anyhow, we had these last night, with a few substitutions:
- used mahi-mahi instead of swordfish
- used regular green peppers instead of poblano
- used grape tomatoes vs cherry
they came out delicious! i served it with yellow rice and some grilled zucchini (marinated in balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and soy sauce). yum!
DH and i both rated it a 4 out of 5. 5 is reserved for truly spectacular dishes that we'd want to eat all the time or serve to company. it was close to being a 5, but of the people i know, i don't know that they'd enjoy it because of the interesting flavors (for example, a lot of people don't like cumin that much). but we will definitely make it again. i'm trying to eat more fish, and this recipe worked like magic! i ate all the fish on my plate...and then some
Thanks for the reviews. This is one I passed by. If you guys hadn't given it such good reviews I would never have tried it.
These were great as leftovers (provided I didn't over-nuke them). I had them two days in a row and wasnít sick of them (amazing!). I think this is going to be one of my favorites for the year - and I almost didnít make them because they seemed so boring.
I guess I should try these now that they've gotten such good reviews.
Do you think I could substitute tuna? I have that on hand and not the swordfish.
