It’s Tuesday, which means it’s Sicilian dining at its best, a weekly event in most households around the world. What are you cooking tonight?
Here, following the usual lighting of the sparklers and exploding Roman candles, we’ll fire up the grill and toss onto the bars two small swordfish “steaks” that have of course been oiled with Canola and then rolled in bread crumbs. A few minutes on each side, salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and if they still need more heat into a 200 degree oven to finish. Slice into strips and place atop the pasta and simple tomato sauce you cooked while the grill was getting hot. We’re talking about 3/4 pound of fish for three people and about twenty minutes of labor. Hey, look, Sicily is about the pleasures of the kitchen and not standing over a stove.
