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.
