Swordfish with lemon pepper dressing
A really quick and easy seasonal recipe which reminds me of those long lunches we all enjoy on holiday either in beach front restaurants or evenings on the terrace.
You will need (serves 4):
4 swordfish steaks
Generous amount of freshly ground black pepper
Juice of half a lemon
Parsley to garnish (optional)
Extra virgin olive oil
1. To cook the swordfish steaks, heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan and cook for 6-8 minutes each side until golden.
2. Near the end of the swordfish cooking time, heat a little olive oil in a saucepan add the pepper season with salt and slowly add the lemon juice tasting as you go – you don’t need to add it all!
3. Remove the swordfish and drain before serving. Pour over the sauce adding a little more pepper and garnish with parsley.
4. Serve with crunchy green beans and new potatoes
