Lemon Pepper Swordfish

Standard

My husband and I are trying to eat more fish.  At least once a week.  It’s healthy!  But really there is only so much tilapia one can eat before it becomes… a little boring.  Even with all my tasty recipes for it…

So we got some beautiful swordfish steaks from Trader Joes. They came with a recipe for a lemon pepper butter sauce and that is what this recipe is based on.  Though I didn’t have a few of the ingredients so I made some substitutions.  And altered the proportions.  You know how I am.

And they were so delicious…

Lemon Pepper Swordfish

2 Swordfish steaks

2 tbsp butter, softened

1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning

1/2 tsp kosher salt

2 tsp parsley

1/8 tsp lemon juice

Olive oil for the pan

 

Mix the butter, lemon pepper seasoning, salt, parsley, and lemon juice together.

 

Heat a little olive oil in the pan until it shimmers. While that is heating cover one side of each swordfish steak with 1/4 of the butter mixture.

Cook, butter side down, for 5-6 minutes.  Don’t touch the fish while it is cooking.

While the fish is cooking, spread the rest of the butter mixture on the facing side.

Carefully – it will stick a little -flip the fish and finish cooking another 5-6 minutes on the second side.

Serve by drizzling a little of the butter from the pan over the top of the fish.
