Well, this Cleanse & Detox (word on the street is its called the SHEtox.  Get it?) I wrote is WORKING!  It is everywhere I look right now and I am so grateful it's helping me earn an honest living, and I'm happy it is helping people be healthier all at the same time.  So I was going through some of my foodie-photos to post and came across this swordfish steak.  I remember I made it in May because in my world of obsessive compulsivité (just looks fancier that way), May is pink month for me.  So I made it with a pink puree made from cauliflower and a little beet juice and seared up some gorgeous fish to set on top.  The beets and artichoke hearts were definitely a bonus but not the star of the show!  This is SHEtox Week Two-friendly, easier than you could possibly imagine, and oh-my-GRAND-PUBA-delicious!


4 swordfish steaks, rinsed and patted dry

2 tbs coconut oil

1 tbs sea salt

1 tbs pepper

1 tbs garlic powder

1 tbs cumin

1 tbs paprika

1 tbs Italian seasoning

juice of one lemon

Heat the coconut oil in a heavy pan (I use my cast-iron skillet, of course!) on medium heat.  Meanwhile while the oil is heating, mix all seasonings in a bowl and rub into both sides of the fish.  Lay each steak into the heated oil carefully, making sure not to crowd your pan with more than two at a time (see notes).  Cook for about five minutes on each side, squeeze a little lemon over the top of each one just before removing from the pan to serve.  Yes.  It is THAT EASY!

NOTES: If you crowd your pan with too many steaks at once, you will end up steaming your fish and will miss out on a beautiful sear on each side.
