How To Cook Swordfish Steaks - 3 Great Recipes For Seared Swordfish

Fish and seafood lovers everywhere will already hold juicy, flavorful swordfish in high esteem. If you have never tried this fish, you are in for a real treat. The following recipes offer three different possibilities for cooking your swordfish steaks and each recipe is easy enough for beginners.

Seared Swordfish With White Wine


You will need a pair of one inch thick swordfish steaks, weighing six ounces each. Pat the fish dry and use salt and pepper to season it. Heat half a tablespoon of olive oil with a tablespoon of unsalted butter in a skillet over a medium to high heat, and then saute three finely sliced shallots with a little salt for a minute. Push them to the side of the pan and add the fish.

Saute it for three minutes, then turn it over and add quarter of a cup of dry white wine, a tablespoon of chopped capers, and a tablespoon of water. Simmer for three minutes or until the fish is cooked right through. Divide it between two serving plates.

Stir a tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley leaves into the sauce and spoon it over the cooked fish. This is great served with potatoes, green beans, and perhaps a glass of lightly chilled Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Blanc on the side.

Seared Swordfish With Cilantro

Rub some black pepper into a pair of one inch thick swordfish steaks. They should weigh about eight ounces each. Let them sit for five minutes. Combine two tablespoons of olive oil with quarter of a cup of chopped fresh cilantro leaves, half a thinly sliced red onion, and a sliced orange in a bowl.

Heat three tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over a moderately high heat and cook the fish for three minutes per side. Serve it with the red onion dressing.

Seared Swordfish With Fruit Salsa

This recipe is really flavorful and you will find that the peppery taste of the arugula and the sweet yet savory tasting nectarine salsa are wonderful accompaniments for the seafood. You can use peaches instead of nectarines if you like.

Combine two diced nectarines with half a cup each of diced red onion and chopped fresh cilantro, quarter of a teaspoon of salt and three tablespoons of lime juice in a bowl. You can also add a seeded, chopped jalapeno if you want to.

Combine a teaspoon of oil with six cups of baby arugula in another bowl. Heat two and a half teaspoons of oil in a skillet over a moderately high heat. Cut a pair of twelve ounce swordfish steaks, which are one inch thick, into portions, and sprinkle them with salt and black pepper.

Cook them for seven or eight minutes in total, or until they are opaque in the center. Make sure you do not overcook them, else they will dry out. Divide the arugula between four serving plates and top with the cooked seafood and salsa.
