2 tablespoons coriander
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 teaspoon cumin
4 fillets swordfish steaks -- 1-inch thick approximately 3/4-pound each
1/4 pound tomatillos -- husked and rinsed, OR canned tomatillos
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 medium fresh jalapeno -- minced
1 clove garlic -- minced
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 spray vegetable oil spray
1 medium diced red-ripe tomato -- garnish

Preparation / Directions:

At least 1 hour and up to 4 hours before you plan to grill swordfish steaks, prepare dry rub, combining ingredients in a small bowl. Rub steaks with mixture, wrap them in plastic and refrigerate. For the vinaigrette: Combining ingredients in a food processor. Remove steaks from refrigerator and let sit covered at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Fire up grill, bringing the temperature to medium-high (3 seconds with the hand test). Transfer steaks to a well-oiled grate and grill uncovered over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side, until opaque throughout. Rotate fish 180 degrees once on each side. If there is any resistance when you turn or rotate fish, re-oil the grate. If grilling 1 covered, cook for the same amount of time, turning and rotating in a similar manner. Serve steaks hot, drizzled with vinaigrette,
