I have most back copies of , The Pleasures of Cooking! I have misplaced the copy and I cannot recall which issue, that has the recipe for swordfish kabobs and then there was a recipe for rice pilaf. If you have those recipes could you forward to me! Please! Thx❤️

Tandoori Style Swordfish Tacos please.

I am afraid I may need to throw this one back into the pool of recipe testers. Turns out that swordfish is not a variety of fish widely available in the UK. I can order it frozen from one on-line supplier, but they can't get it to me before Tuesday. So I can certainly try this recipe with either tuna or halibut (and will do as I've still got folks coming to lunch tommorrow expecting a fine twist on tacos from the American in the neighborhood!), but I am not sure that will be close enough for an official test. So I am looking to the food52 editors to see how I should proceed. Sorry!

Thanks cheese1227 -- please feel free to substitute any firm, steak-like fish that's available locally in the UK.
cheese1227 July 24, 2010
OK. Will do.
