Broiled Swordfish with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce
Sweet red pepper flavors a simple creamy sauce for broiled swordfish steaks. Try roasting the red pepper for a smokier flavor.
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon salt - divided use
1 cup dry white wine
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/4 cup powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon paprika
4 (6-ounce) swordfish steaks
1 clove large garlic, halved
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat broiler.
- Melt butter over medium heat in a small skillet. When foam subsides, sauté chopped garlic for 1 minute, until fragrant; season with half the amount of salt. Add wine and red bell pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook until liquid is almost totally evaporated, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a blender, add powdered milk and paprika and process until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan and hold warm over low heat.
- Rub swordfish all over with halved garlic. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Place on broiler pan and cook, 4 inches from broiler for 4 minutes. Turn and broil another 3 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
- Pour sauce over fish and serve warm.
