Grilled Swordfish with Watermelon and Mango Salsa
Bradley Fisher, Executive Chef at the Berkshire Country Club in Reading, Pennsylvania and the winner of a Crown Verity grill at the Chef To Chef Conference shares his recipe of the first meal he prepared on his new grill!
Notes from the Chef: This recipe is full of flavor and very simple. The salsa is extremely versatile and could be used with many different types of proteins such as salmon, grilled chicken or halibut. I served the dish with a potato puree for this photo but it would be great with roasted red skin potatoes as well. I recommend preparing the salsa the day before. This will allow the flavors to marry nicely as well as make it easier on you the day that you are actually preparing the dinner for your friends and family.
