White Brick Wall

To create this incredible Seared Swordfish, gather the following ingredients:

  • 4 swordfish fillets (6-8 ounces each)

  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus, trimmed

  • 2 zucchinis, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • Zest of one lemon

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Seared Swordfish Preparation:

Swordfish Marination: Begin by seasoning your swordfish fillets with a sprinkle of salt and black pepper. Allow them to marinate for about 15 minutes, letting the flavors infuse.

Searing Swordfish: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Carefully place the swordfish fillets into the hot skillet. Sear each side for 3-4 minutes until they develop a golden crust and become opaque in the center.

 

Lemon Butter Reduction Sauce: In the same skillet, deglaze with white wine, scraping up any flavorful bits. Add lemon juice and zest to the skillet, letting it simmer and reduce by half. Reduce heat to low and whisk in unsalted butter until the sauce becomes velvety and smooth. Season to taste.

Asparagus and Zucchini Garnish: While the swordfish cooks, lightly sauté asparagus and zucchini in a separate pan with a drizzle of olive oil until they are tender-crisp. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
