Swordfish Steak with Green Sauce and Sautéed Asparagus

June 6, 2012

The weather has been so nice in Michigan we have spent a lot of time cooking on the grill.
Recently I saw a great swordfish steak at the grocery store and splurged. We don’t eat fish very often (for reasons I will go into on another post) and swordfish is by no means local – but it is tasty!


  • Swordfish steaks
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup red wine/ white wine vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper


  • Food processor or blender
  • Rind grater


1.  Clean and dry the steaks.

2. Marinate the steaks in the juice of 1 lemon for 15 minutes or so. Too much longer and they will start to cook in the juice.

3. Lightly oil a pan with olive oil. Add the asparagus to the pan and coat it in the oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh black pepper. Cook for 10-15 minutes on medium.

4. Start the steaks on the grill. We eat swordfish cooked medium. So we just do a few minutes on each side.

5. Add the parsley, garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, olive oil, grated rind of 1 lemon peel, and juice of 1 lemon to the food processor and blend until smooth.

6. Plate and enjoy 🙂

    yum! Looks really good Rachel! I have not tried swordfish, and salmon is getting old, so I’ll have to try that. And I LOVE aparagus! 🙂
