Cooking Time: 10 mins


    4 swordfish steaks (about 5 oz each) *
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 shallot, chopped
    2 small to medium corn cobs, kernels removed (can be substituted with about 8 3/4 oz. canned corn)
    1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
    1 small to medium avocado, diced (about 5 oz)
    1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
    1/4 cup white wine *
    2 Tbsp lemon juice
    2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
    1 light spray of cooking spray


    Lightly spray a non-stick frying pan, then heat on high, and sear the swordfish for 1 to 2 minutes or until starting to soften. Remove from pan. Cover with foil and keep warm in a low oven.

    Add the shallot, corn, and red bell pepper to pan and cook, stirring for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the avocado, coriander and white wine. Cover and steam for 1 minute or until heated through.

    Place avocado-corn mixture on heated plates and top with swordfish. Add lemon and vinegar to the pan and whisk into pan juices. Pour over the fish and serve immediately.


    * You can replace swordfish with salmon, sole or haddock, if desired. Note: These variations are not included in the nutritional analysis.
