Expert Tips

The torpedo-shaped swordfish gets its name from the long, flat sword-like bill that projects out of the upper part of the jaw. It uses the “sword” to attack its prey and, believe it or not, an occasional ship!

Warm tortillas by heating them in an ungreased skillet over medium heat 15 to 30 seconds, turning at least once. Or wrap several tortillas in dampened microwavable paper towels and microwave on High 20 to 30 seconds or until warm.
