Sorry to be getting this to you so late in the day.

A three year old with a stomach bug has got this mama turned inside out, upside down and backwards. But as they say, “Better late than never” right guys?!

This is the PERFECT meal for a hot summer night, it’s light, refreshing, and simple to make.

Swordfish is a really hearty fish so paired with the crisp, crunchy salad you’ll not only find balance but a fresh, deeeelicious dinner.

Check out the video and let me know what you think!

For those who want to make this 100% Paleo, simply eliminate the pita bread and you're there.


  • 1 lb. Swordfish
  • 1whole wheat pita
  • 2 scallions, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 big fat clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups of Persian cucumbers, quartered and cut into chunks
  • 1.5 cup of quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped mint
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • ½ tsp. Sumac
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste



Split the pita bread in half and toast for about 5 minutes in a 425oven or in the toaster.

Set aside to cool.

Combine scallions, garlic, cucumbers, tomatoes, green pepper, mint and parsley in a large bowl.  Dress with lemon, sumac, 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and toss well.

Crumble toasted pita over the top of the salad right before serving.  Set aside.


Heat a grill pan over a medium high heat.  Lightly coat the swordfish with the rest of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Cook 4-5 minutes per side or until the swordfish are just cooked through.

Serve a big scoop of fattoush right alongside the grilled swordfish.  Top with a little extra olive oil and enjoy!!

  1. Love it! Do you have any tips for preventing the fish from sticking to the pan or grill?

  2. That looks delicious! is sumac replaceable with anything more common? I’ve never heard of it…

  3. I love your “how to” videos! I also like that your recipes are a few ingredients, but always emphasize freshness. Keep them coming! Oh, I’d love a video on overnight oats!
