Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
2.00 tablespoon turmeric
¼ cup cilantro leaves; chopped fine
2.00 \N pieces swordfish - (5 oz ea); thin as possible
2.00 teaspoon olive oil
1 \N salt; to taste

1 \N === red tomato salsa ===
½ cup diced tomatoes
1.00 tablespoon chopped red onion
1.00 teaspoon chopped jalapeno pepper
1.00 \N lime; halved
1 \N salt; to taste

Preheat grill to high or preheat broiler. In a bowl place turmeric, cilantro, and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Mix together make a paste, if it needs more moisture, add a little more oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place a piece of the swordfish between two large pieces of plastic wrap. Using the smooth side of a meat mallet, carefully and gently pound the piece of fish until it is about ¼ inch thick.

Work from the center out, slowly pounding so you don't rip the flesh.

Repeat with the other piece of fish. Lift off the top layer of plastic wrap, season with salt and pepper, smear half of the turmeric paste onto one side of each swordfish paillard. Turn it onto the hot grill or place under the broiler and season the exposed side. Grill for 30 to 40 seconds and carefully flip with a big spatula or two small ones. Cook for 30 more seconds. Place each paillard on a serving plate and top with red tomato salsa. For the salsa, in a bowl combine all ingredients. This recipe yields 2 servings.
