Grilled Swordfish with Chermoula Marinade
Chermoula marinade
6 small garlic cloves
1 teaspoon paprika
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 2 x 1/2-inch strips lemon peel, white pith removed
¾ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
¼ cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pitted whole kalamata olives, finely chopped

2 boneless swordfish fillets (3/4 - 1 pound each)
Place the garlic in a Cuisinart® Mini Chopper. Pulse to finely chop. Add the paprika, salt, pepper, coriander, cumin, red pepper flakes and lemon peel. Pulse until a paste forms. Transfer mixture to a small bowl. Add the cilantro, parsley, lemon juice and vinegar. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Add the olives; reserve ¼ cup marinade. Place the swordfish in a 9 x13-inch baking dish; add the remaining marinade to cover the fish. Cover with plastic wrap; let fish marinate 1 to 2 hours. Bring to room temperature before grilling.

Fit the Cuisinart® Griddler® Combo with both of the grill plates and preheat to high.

Once grill is preheated, lay the swordfish on the hot grill plates, one fillet per side. Grill 4 minutes on the first side; flip; grill second side for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium on both sides of the grill. Grill an additional minute on both sides.

To serve, place the swordfish on a platter and top with the reserved chermoula marinade.
