Delicoious Sword Fish Recipe

Swordfish are true delicatessen and this easy to make swordfish recipe is no acceptation to this rule. It combines the Swordfish’s fantastically flavoured meat with the freshness of rosemary to create a feast for your taste buds. The recipe can be done by someone who knows nothing about cocking and is suitable for every occasion. It will be a hit if served to your boss at an important dinner but is still easy enough to make a good dinner any day of the week. Another benefit of this swordfish recipe is that it is very low on fat and a good diet if you are trying to lose weight or just watching what you eat.

Seared sword fish

You will need the following to make this dish.

  • 4 ounce swordfish steaks
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (preferable Extra virgin oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white wine
I also recommend that you get some lemons to use for garnish and to give the finished swordfish a little extra flavour.

Start by taking a bowl and pouring the wine into it. Add the garlic and half the rosemary in the wine and stir. Pour the mixture into a baking dish. You then take the swordfish and sprinkle it with salt and pepper before you put them into the baking dish with the wine mixture in it. Let the mixture rest for at least an hour in the refrigerator. You can prepare this the night before or in the morning if you plan to serve this dish on a work day.

Preheat the oven for medium heat and take a new bowl and mix the lemon juice, the other half of the rosemary and the olive oil in it.

Take out the fish from the refrigerator and remove it from the wine mixture. Let the fish drip of before you grill it. The grill time is usually around 10 minutes.

Take the fish out of the oven and take the lemon juice mixture. Pour the mixture onto the grilled swordfish and serve!

This recipe results in 4 servings.
