Cooking with Barbara: Swordfish & Salad

Cooking with Barbara: Swordfish & Salad

My parents were visiting for New Years recently and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to cook with my mom.  I learn so much cooking with my mom.  As many of you know, my mom (Barbara Libath) was Ina Garten's assistant for 20+ years.

 One of her jobs then (and still today) is to test recipes.  Is there anyone better to learn from? And truthfully, one thing my mom is really good at is pulling together great menus with Barefoot Contessa Recipes. 

On New Year's Eve, we wanted to serve fresh seafood so I visited a local seafood shop, Bluffton Oyster Company, for some swordfish.  My mom suggested that the Balsamic Onions and Blue Cheese Salad would compliment it.  Of course, she was right (mothers are always right!) It was a delicious meal that we could serve again and again and perfect for any occasion.
If you're looking for some of these recipes or recipes similar to them - we highly suggest The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook & Barefoot Contessa Parties!.
