Pan Seared Swordfish with Herbed Butter Sauce

Posted by in General, Seafood

I am just loving the newly opened Whole Foods Market in our town. I have been there almost everyday since it’s grand opening. Last Sunday a display of a whole swordfish right outside their store immediately caught my attention. They were on sale for $9.99 a lb. and were even sampling it for their customers. Who can resist that bargain so I bought a piece that was just a little over a pound for our dinner that night.

To prepare, I cut the swordfish steak in half since it was a huge portion. Then dry with paper towels. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Place your fish on pan and cook for about 3 minutes. Then flip fish and add 2 tbsp butter (I used herbed butter), 2 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp dill on the pan. Cook for another 3 minutes while continuously basting fish with the herbed butter.

To plate, place your swordfish steak on plate and pour some herbed butter sauce on top. Serve with steamed vegetables and salad.
