About: The swordfish certainly stands out in a crowd. This creature of the sea has a long beak, which looks like a sword. Growing up to 15 feet in length, the whole fish can weigh up to 1,400 pounds, though the ones we harvest are much, much smaller!
Taste Profile: Swordfish is a mild, slightly sweet fish. It has white or pinkish-orange flesh when raw, which turns beige once cooked. It offers a dense moist texture which is often compared to beef steak. This mild seafood is a good option for those new to eating fish and anyone that doesn’t enjoy “fishy tasting” fish.
Preparation Tips: Thick, dense swordfish steaks are ideal for grilling and pan-roasting, but be careful not to overcook—their low fat content means swordfish can easily turn dry. A simple cooking method for direct heat like grilling cook a 1 inch thick steak 4-5 minutes per side with your favorite seasoning and serve with some summertime grilled vegetables. It's that simple!
