The fruits of this lovely tree are still used in folk remedies and cookery, and images of it appear in European art. Folklore has it that the Phoenicians, who were the great Mediterranean fish traders of antiquity, introduced this method of smoking to the island of Sardinia.
Smoked swordfish makes a delicious appetizer to a meal, served on a simple bed of rocket salad with lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. It's naturally low in fat, and rich in the fish oils that are viewed as an essential part of the healthy Mediterranean diet. Try it with all kinds of bread, including our pane carasau.
For a final touch crack some black pepper and compliment with a glass of dry white wine such as our Vermentino.
