Just like its East coast cousin the Lobster Roll, these mini New England style grilled swordfish rolls are basking in simplicity. With a touch of lemon-caper mayonnaise to compliment, a hot buttered bun and warm grilled swordfish steaks, these tasty little appetizers with have you craving a lobster roll before bed.

Serve with basket of chunky home fries and lots of Sam Adams Summer Brew!

Thanks Jennifer!

I so miss Boston and Cape Cod and since moving here to Southern CA, I am always looking for ways to get a taste and feel of home!
