Grilled Swordfish and Summer Vegetables with Basil Vinaigrette

  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • HEALTHY
  1. 1/2 cup basil leaves
  2. 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  3. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  4. 1 small garlic clove
  5. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  7. 1 yellow bell pepper
  8. One 1 1/4-pound eggplant, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices
  9. 1 medium zucchini, cut on the bias 1/4-inch thick
  10. Four 6-ounce swordfish fillets
  1. Light a grill. In a blender, combine the basil with the red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic and 1/4 cup of the olive oil and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill the bell pepper, turning frequently, until charred all over, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool. Discard the skin and seeds and slice the pepper 1 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Brush the eggplant and zucchini with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter and keep warm.
  4. Brush the swordfish with oil, season with salt and pepper and grill, turning once, until just cooked through, about 6 minutes. Transfer to the platter, drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve, passing any remaining vinaigrette at the table.
