  • 2 pounds swordfish steaks about 1" thick cut into 4 portions
  • 1 T olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 T unsalted butter 1 half stick
  • 3/4 pounds mushrooms cleaned and sliced
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon about 3 T juice
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • 1 splash dry white wine
  • 1 T capers
  • 2 T chopped parsley


  • Heat your oven to 400 degrees. Rub the swordfish with the olive oil and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a griddle pan or cast iron pan on high. Sear the fish on both sides for a couple minutes on each side. Turn off the heat and put the skillet in the oven to finish, about 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish.
  • In a separate skillet melt butter on medium high. When the butter is hot add mushrooms, green onions, lemon juice and zest and splash of white wine. Saute for 5 - 6 minutes until mushrooms are tender and there is very little liquid left in the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Plate the swordfish on individual plates topped with mushrooms and garnish with capers and parsley.
