Swordfish with Tangy Avocado Sauce – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Fridays are always nice because you can see the weekend just ahead, and even though you may have errands to run over the next few days, it doesn’t matter – it’s a break from the everyday grind.  Friday nights are a good time either to go out to dinner, or make something that doesn’t taste like a weeknight meal, but it is just as quick to prepare.  I vote for the latter of the two.

When I was working in my marketing career, not too many years ago, I remember by the end of the day, I just wanted to eat something special for dinner, and I began to think of all the recipes I could create that were going to be delicious, but not too complicated.  Things haven’t changed much, just my place of work, and this is a meal that is super fast and tastes like a chef made it in his/her kitchen.

Swordfish with Tangy Avocado Sauce couldn’t get any simpler.  For starters, the fish cooks up in minutes and the sauce is pureed in a blender just prior to cooking.  The only thing that requires a little prep is to mince and saute a shallot first – that’s it!

I think this meal is great to serve for your family tonight, but if you want to impress your friends over the weekend – it’s a pretty great idea.  So, enjoy your Friday and cook something spectacular.

To Prepare:

1. In a small saute pan, add 1 teaspoon olive oil and place over medium heat.  Add minced shallot and saute for 3 minutes, or until light golden brown.  Remove from heat, cool.

2. In a blender, add avocado, yogurt, cilantro, chili and salt.  Add cooked shallot and 1/3 cup water, puree until smooth, set aside.

3. In a saute pan, add butter and 1 teaspoon olive oil and place over medium heat.  Add swordfish and saute slowly on first side for 3 minutes, flip over and cook for 2 minutes.  Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 2-3 more minutes (you don’t want to overcook fish). Squeeze lemon over fish and remove from heat.

4.  Smear a little Avocado Sauce on plates and top with fish and a little cilantro.  Enjoy!
