Ginger Garlic Swordfish Steaks
Happy Hump Day - we've made it halfway through the week! For anyone that's read previous posts, it's no secret I love fresh seafood, and Mazzaro's Italian Market for their selection of it. Yesterday I was able to find some great looking swordfish steaks, so that is what was for dinner, served alongside my grandmother's canned green beans (heated with a little diced tomatoes). The swordfish itself was quick & easy, so would make for a great weeknight meal. You could also use this sauce on other white fish as well, and probably even salmon. Give it a try, and enjoy!
2- 6 oz swordfish steaks
2-3 tb olive oil (or butter at room temperature if you prefer)
2 tsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
dash of crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp lemon zest, grated
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine 2 tb olive oil, parsley, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and lemon zest. Pat dry and season the swordfish with salt and pepper on the side facing up, along with half of the lemon juice. Heat 1 tb olive oil over medium-high heat and sear the swordfish on one side for about 3 minutes. Flip and top with the remainder of the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and half of the marinade. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Drizzle remaining marinade over the swordfish and serve with your preferred side. Enjoy!
