Grilled Swordfish with Thai Dipping Sauce

For many people, the seductiveness of Thai cooking lies in the careful balancing of basic flavors — sweet, sour, savory, and spicy. This recipe demonstrates these principles without getting into a laundry list of ingredients. The simple dipping sauce in this recipe would go equally well with grilled chicken, steak, or shrimp.

Ingredients

  • One 3/4-pound 1-inch-thick swordfish steak
  • 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 red jalapeño, seeded and chopped finely
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Preheat a gas grill or cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, combine the honey, cilantro, jalapeño, fish sauce, and citrus juices in a bowl and whisk to combine.

Coat the steak with the oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes, then turn 90 degrees and cook for 2 more minutes. Flip the steak and repeat.

Serve the steak with the dipping sauce on the side, or if you like, drizzled lightly over the top.
