Dino's parents got him a gas grill for his first Father's Day. It was delivered on Friday, and we just couldn't wait until Sunday to break it in, so I picked up a big swordfish steak from the Farmers' Market. It was our first time grilling swordfish, and our first time using cedar planks. The cedar gave it a really nice flavor - but it's really potent. Not something I'd want too often.
I soaked the plank in beer for an hour and then drizzled some olive oil on one side of it and sprinkled it with salt. I cut the swordfish into two pieces and put it on top. I drizzled more olive oil on top, added salt and pepper, some fresh thyme and lemon slices. Dino cooked them on the grill until they were perfectly flaky.
