Chef Chuck's Swordfish Sandwich

Panino al Pesce Spada

An elegant meaty swordfish steak sandwich served on a bed of mixed greens, topped with garden fresh tomatoes, capers, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. A healthy and satisfying fish grilled on my favorite ciabiatta roll.  Look for this recipe and others in the new edition of Lodge's Cookbook coming soon.
