"Catch of the Month" September Recipe - Roasted Swordfish Steaks w/ Peppercorn Butter


  • 1/4 cup butter, room temp.
  • 2 tsp chopped parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp ground peppercorns
  • 1 lemon, zested and quartered
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 swordfish steaks, 1 inch thick


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400°F.  Mix butter, parsley, garlic, half of the peppercorns, and lemon zest in a small bowl.  Season with salt to taste.

Step 2: Heat oil in large ovenproof skillet (cast iron works great) over medium-high heat.  Sprinkle steaks with salt and remaining peppercorns.  Add swordfish to skillet and cook until brown and crispy, about 3 minutes.  Flip steaks and transfer to the oven. 

Step 3: Roast steaks until just cooked through, about 8 minutes.  Transfer to plates.

Step 4: Add butter mixture to the same skillet.  Scrape up any browned bits and once all the butter has melted, drizzle over your steaks.  Serve hot and enjoy!
