"Quick and easy grilled or pan seared swordfish steaks. This can be done on an outdoor grill, indoor grill pan; or, on a stove top, in a heavy (cast iron) skillet. I serve this with my 'Minted Herb Feta Rice' (Recipe #24992). Great for a weeknight dinner; yet, perfect to entertain with as well. Tandoori paste is a great condiment if you haven't cooked with it before. And, don't worry ... it will not sit in your pantry unused; it is great with chicken, pork; and other seafood as well. Prep time does not include time for the fish to marinate."
Marinade ... Add everything to a small bowl or measuring cup; and, mix to combine. Lay the swordfish steaks in a small baking dish; and, brush/spoon the marinade over both sides of the steaks. Cover with plastic wrap; and marinate, at least 30 minutes, up to 1 hour.
Rice ... As mentioned, I like to serve this with my 'Minted Herb Feta Rice - Recipe #24992;' which it isn't necessary; but, I happen to like it. So, if you plan to serve it with the rice, you need to start that now; as, it will take longer than the fish.
Fish ... Once the fish has marinated, remove from the refrigerator; and, set them on the counter for 15 minutes to take the chill off. You never want to cook with cold seafood.
Grill/Saute ... Whether you use an outdoor grill, grill pan; or a cast iron skillet; you want to bring it up to medium high-high heat - then, add the remaining oil. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on the first side; and place seasoned side down. Then, season the second side. Cook the steaks for 3-4 minutes on the first side until you get a nice sear; flip, and cook another 3-4 minutes. You want the fish firm, but NOT overcooked, so keep an eye on it.
Serve and ENJOY! ... Don't forget to garnish the steaks with the scallions. The swordfish is good served on it's own; but, as mentioned, I love to serve it with my 'Minted Herb Feta Rice.' Add a tomato or green salad on the side - for a quick and easy dinner.
