Swordfish Are a Jumpin’

If you have ever eaten swordfish at a restaurant, you know what a treat this delicious tasting Xiphias is. But sometimes, you just want to cook some for yourself. Here’s the lowdown on where to buy and how to prepare and cook swordfish steaks.

One of the swordfish’s most exciting traits is its ability to jump straight out of the water. While some believe this is done to remove parasites, others like to think this is a simple act of showing off.

The swordfish is easily able to kill other fish and squid thanks to its speed and unique heating brain. Despite its predatory habits, the fish hasn’t been able to escape the clutches of humans, ending up as a delicious meal on plenty of plates.

San Marino Seafood in Pasadena sells some of the freshest swordfish steaks around. No matter what time you arrive, you’re guaranteed to pick up a delicious piece of seafood. (And if you’re feeling lazy, you can eat your swordfish right there in the restaurant.)

But what do you do with your swordfish once you’ve brought it home? If you have a huge piece, you’ll want to grab a steak knife and cut it in half. Then, you’ll need to check for any white sections and cut these out before removing the skin.

Once your steak is fully prepared, it’s time to get down to business. Luckily, swordfish only takes a few minutes to cook. First, pour a minimal amount of olive oil onto your grill then throw on the fish steaks. You can douse the swordfish in salt and pepper for some extra seasoning.

Don’t forget to turn the fish as it’s cooking. You can also squeeze a few drops of lemon juice onto it if you’re feeling fancy. When both sides are lightly browned, your swordfish is ready to eat.

From San Marino Seafood straight to your table.
