Lemon Basil Butter Swordfish

Recipe: https://www.mygourmetconnection.com/grilled-swordfish-lemon-basil-butter/

This was another Pinterest find. We food shopped last week and Mike was in charge of choosing the fish and he went with Swordfish kabobs ( they were probably on sale and wild caught LOL)

So, gotta love Pinterest, type swordfish in and this came up. I had all the ingredients so we were good to go.

It felt good to be back in the kitchen. I am writing this on the same night as I made it! Wahoo AND I took the picture, not so Wahoo but I committed to cultivating this food blogging and cooking hobby and not letting it not happen because Mike wasn’t taking the pictures anymore. I am a big girl and this hobby is about me finding what I enjoy.

So, the pictures will get there.

This came together pretty quickly. That is what I love about fish. It never takes long to cook and you can’t under cook it!

The butter needed to be softened and I have learned now that the best thing to do is melt it on the stove in a small saucepan. But this time, probably because I combined it with the lemon juice, it hardened again!

I mixed the ingredients together for the lemon basil butter and let it sit while I cooked the fish and the darn butter hardened again, I am guessing it had to do with the acidity of the lemon juice. I love my adventures in the kitchen, because I am LEARNING! 🙂

You can see in the picture that the butter was like basil lump-balls haha. They tasted delish though!

I really thought once I put a scoop onto the hot fish that it would melt again but nope. I had to spread it out which was fine and I had soaked the kabob in lemon juice and EVOO before cooking it so it really had good flavor. I enjoyed this.

Fish is so easy and in my experience, all you really need is some butter and some spices.

I stir fried some veggies in EVOO and added almonds and called it a meal.


Give it a try.

And oh yeah, I added some panko bread crumbs, very little, because butter and bread crumbs on fish is sooo good. We had it a few weeks ago for Easter. Yummy!!
