A note about serious food allergies

Prime and traditionally reserved for special occasions, it's a dinner to remember when Swordfish is on the table. We think this fish is so delectable on its own that we prepare it simply, with light pan-searing to bring out its naturally flaky, buttery flavor. And pair it with a tart and sweet salsa of winter tangerines, jalapeños, onion, and cilantro, and serve it all atop fluffy, scallion-studded jasmine rice. The result is a healthy, elegant meal that will leave you satisfied and energized.

    Prepare the Rice

    Rinse rice to remove any debris, moving your fingers through the rice until the water turns from milky to clear. Place the rice in a pot with enough water to cover the rice by ¾" (about 1 ¼ cup water). Bring the rice to a boil over high heat, uncovered. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting. Cover and simmer until the rice is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove the rice from the heat, stir in green onions and salt and pepper to taste and allow to sit, still covered, for at least 10 minutes. Fluff with fork before serving.

Toss together until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
