Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine the lemon zest, garlic, 1 cup olive oil, the thyme and Ottoman spice in a bowl; mix well. Divide the marinade between two 1-gallon zip-top bags, then divide the swordfish between the bags. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  2. Preheat a grill to high and oil the grates. Grill the red onion and jalapeno until marked, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the red onion to a bowl, top with the vinegar and cover with plastic wrap, trapping the steam inside to finish the cooking process. Peel, seed and chop the jalapeno.
  3. Make the salsa verde: Combine the jalapeno, parsley, cilantro, mint, lime juice and remaining 1 cup olive oil in a bowl. Once cool enough to touch, remove the onion from the vinegar and coarsely chop, then add both the vinegar and the onion to the salsa verde; season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and combine well.
  4. Remove the swordfish from the marinade, shake off the excess and season with kosher salt. Reduce the grill heat to medium. Grill the swordfish 2 minutes, then rotate 90 degrees and grill 2 more minutes to create crosshatch grill marks, then flip and grill until just opaque, about 2 more minutes. Increase the grill heat to high. Grill the halved lemons and the avocados cut-side down until marked, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Dress the watercress with some of the salsa verde on a platter. Top with the swordfish, avocado and more salsa. Garnish with the grilled lemons. Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt.
