Swordfish Panini

By In Recipes
Not a clue why I placed swordfish steaks on my Thursday Ocado delivery; I really wanted tuna. They were probably on offer. But I figured they would work equally as well in this simple recipe. An opportunity to utilise another jar from the Haywards pickle range I was kindly sent a week or so back.

One of the Haywards Sweet and Mild Gherkins, roughly chopped and mixed in a spoonful or two of decent mayonnaise along with a squeeze of lemon juice and a grind of seasoning, makes for a delightful sauce in this ‘Italian’ sandwich. Those Haywards Gherkins are generously proportioned I have to say, one of them bad boys was plenty to add a spike of flavour and a little crunch to the filling for this panini. Its another of those quick and simple recipes I turn to of a weekday. Serve with a crisp Italian white wine and maybe a bowl of chips if you are feeling especially hungry. An extra Gherkin on the side wouldn’t hurt either.

    Looking at your easy recipe, there’s no excuse why people should get stuck in the tuna and sweetcorn rut!
