Moroccan Spiced Swordfish with Three Grain Salad


This was an easy, wonderful dinner. I bought the Tan Tan spice mixture from Savory Spice shop. They were inspired by ras el hanout which is a blend of any type of toasted spices specific to Morrocco. I simply rubbed it on the swordfish and grilled it. The results were fantastic! I paired it with a salad of Israeli Cous Cous, peas, cherry tomatoes and red quinoa. Whenever I make any grains, I always cook extra and keep them in the fridge or even freeze them so they are on hand for impromptu side dishes and salads. I topped it with just a bit of creamy French-style sheep’s milk feta. Delicious!
