3 Easy Swordfish Recipes Fit for Parties

A collection of my favourite swordfish recipes using all parts of the fish.

Swordfish Facts freshSwordfish is an endanger species, so when a swordfish is killed the meat must be used to its full.

I wrote an article last year on how to recognize if a swordfish is fresh, now I want to show you how each part of the fish can be cooked.

First Swordfish recipes:

 Baked Swordfish Wheel, using the lower part of the body.

Swordfish wheel

It is an ideal dish for dinner parties. A wheel should weight 2 kg, it is cooked in the oven and can serve up to 8 people.

To make sure it keeps its form when cooked, you have to remove the cartilages and the bones.

To keep the meat moist, the wheel is cooked in the oven but covered with aluminium foil and at bain-marie (the pan is immersed in water).

 

You will have beautiful juices from the fish and you can serve with potatoes or rice that will absorb the flavour.

I hope you have enjoyed this article and that you find some inspiration from these recipes.

When cooking fish I always recommend to cut it over a dedicated fish board as it is more hygienic.

I use a Index Chopping Board Set  you can find on Amazon (affiliate link)

Each board is colour coded and has a symbol indicating its use e.g. meat (red), fish (blue), vegetables (green), and cooked food (white).
