    We are having this for dinner tonight.  I’ll let you know how it goes!  My husband saw this recipe on a fishing show this morning.

    Oh my…… the mixture of basil and mint is amazing with swordfish.  There is never too much garlic for my taste and the olive oil kept the fish moist.    We served this with sliced potatoes that were lightly fried in olive oil.  I put some of the fresh basil in the potatoes.

      Can’t wait to try it. Sounds like something I’ve made before though.
