Grilled Swordfish with Lima Bean & Herb Butter

Grilled Swordfish with Lima Bean & Herb Butter.

I haven’t always loved Swordfish.  I remember it being dry and underwhelming, so frankly I avoided it.  Too many other choices that I knew I loved.  I’ve shared recently that fish speak to me.  There’s really no other way to explain how I can approach a massive row of freshness and choose….that one, I’ll have that piece of fish.  That’s what happened the day I fell in love with Swordfish.

Something told me after a good 20 years of no Swordfish, to give it another chance, a fresh start if you will.  Well apparently all Swordfish aren’t created equal.  What I really mean is all Swordfish isn’t prepared equally.  One thing Swordfish isn’t…is dry.  So forget I said that earlier and follow some very basic cooking advice.

Liberally apply olive oil, salt & pepper to both sides of fresh 1″ thick Swordfish steaks.  Heat the grill to medium high.  Grill steaks 4 minutes per side (1/4 turn after two minutes to get the pretty criss-cross grill marks).  After cooking on both sides, allow to rest for 5 minutes.  Melt in your mouth goodness.  You too will be in love.

We served our Grilled Swordfish with Lima Bean & Herb Butter.  Fabulous flavors.  I chose lemony thyme, parsley, and a bit of rosemary to blend with softened butter, garlic, s&p, and lima beans.  I love this.
