I am almost embarrassed to update my blog since I have been on such a long haitus! Well, after a week in Mexico I am anxious to put the chips and margaritas behind me and hunker down for some healthy eating. Spending a week by the sea has awakened my seafood yearnings so today is Pistachio Encrusted Swordfish Steaks.
Pistachio Encrusted Swordfish Steaks
6 swordfish steaks
1 cup veg. broth
8oz dry roasted pistachios
1/3 cup cilantro - hand chopped
2 tbpn olive oil
salt and pepper
Pulse pistachios 20 sec to make a breadcrumb consistency. Mix in bowl with chopped cilantro, oil, and salt and pepper. Set aside
Preheat oven to 400. Salt and pepper both sides of steaks and place on foil lined tray. Spread crust on top of steaks and pour veg. broth at bottom of pan (steam from broth keeps the fish moist). Bake in oven for 8 min and then broil under high heat for another minute or two to brown the top.
I plan on squeezing a little lemon juice on top and serving with sauteed spinach and papaya chunks. I will report back tomorrow with a new recipe and let you know how the swordfish turned out.
