Simple and Healthy Sesame Crusted Swordfish plus Tasty Tuesdays

I am trying to make healthier food choices these days, including eating more fish. I scored some great deals on seafood recently at the grocery store, which is always a thrill for me. First up, I made this ridiculously easy and flavorful Sesame Crusted Swordfish.

Did I mention it was easy? Splash on some tamari sauce (or soy sauce) then sprinkle on the sesame seeds.

Sear it in a cast iron skillet coated with olive oil and a bit of sesame oil for added flavor.

Then serve it with some fresh tangerine juice squeezed on top and some veggies I had quickly stir fried in the skillet while the fish rested.

The leftovers were great the next day in a quick wrap with some of the Do Chua I blogged about last week.
