Swordfish is a natural on the grill, and so are tender small zucchini, sliced up to the stem. Grapefruit is not so much, but we thought it would be a good citrus accent to both the others. So instead of lighting up the indoor grill, we tried all three out on a grill pan.
Brushed the sliced zucchini with olive oil and grilled them first.
Into the warming oven they went, while the swordfish steaks were brushed with more oil, salt, and thyme, and went onto the pan.
Once they were done and resting, we brushed the halves of a pink grapefruit with oil and put them cut side down on the same pan. They stuck a bit, but got a nice char on them anyway.
You'll need a grapefruit knife at the table to get the sections out, but the meaty swordfish with a smack of citrus was a fresh, unusual flavor, so worth it.
