In honor of Christopher and my 1 year anniversary, today, I decided to serve swordfish for our dinner. We had swordfish and filet mignon at our wedding and it was so good! Reliving those memories over dinner was a lot of fun…and it gave us the opportunity to use our toasting flutes again and our formal china for the first time. We finished our meal with a wonderful chocolate mousse cake that we had made to replicate our wedding cake. Yum!
Don’t you just love the roses Hubby gave me? Awwwww.
Anyway, onto the food…I don’t know about you, but I rarely use my broiler. I turn it on maybe once a month if I want to brown the top of a casserole or quickly toast some bread. Other than that, it’s not my go-to cooking method.
But, when I saw this recipe for broiled swordfish, I figured ‘what the heck, let’s give it a try’. Good thing I did. It was wonderful! I made a few tweaks, but the end result was pretty much the same
1 1lb. Swordfish steak, about 1 inch thick
1/4t. Ground black pepper
2 Cloves garlic, crushed
3T. Margarine or butter
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Preheat your broiler. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic and parsley. Let simmer lightly for 2 minutes, just to infuse the butter.
Salt and pepper both sides of the swordfish steak and place in oven proof dish.
Pour half of the butter mixture on top of the fish and broil for 3-4 minutes.
Turn fish over, add the rest of the butter on top and return to the oven for about 6 minutes (this will depend on the thickness of your piece of fish).
Serve with lemon wedges.
