Ok so I’ve never cooked swordfish before, and the experimenter in me just had to try it out. I’ve also never cooked with shallots, and I figured if I was doing an experiment I may as well go all in. Well, the finished product was actually pretty good. 

The best thing about this recipe is that it’s super easy and quick!

What you need:

  • 2 Swordfish steaks
  • 2 whole shallots (4 bulbs)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp honey balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1 tbsp water 
  • Salt and pepper to taste

What you do:

  • Season the swordfish with salt and pepper (I didn’t use measurements)
  • Slice your shallots as thinly as possible
  • Heat the oil and butter on medium-high until the butter is melted fully
  • Add the shallots and a little salt and pepper and sauté until they become translucent 
  • Push the shallots to the side and place the swordfish into the pan and cook for about 3 minutes
  • Flip the swordfish over and add the balsamic vinegar, wine and water
  • Turn the heat down and simmer for another 3-5 minutes or until the fish is cooked through
  • Plate and serve! (Drizzle some sauce and shallots over the fish for some added flavor)

I served mine with some roasted asparagus and quinoa with chopped carrots and zucchini.
