How to Cook Swordfish
The first thing you will want to do is make up your pineapple mango salsa. Or, if you don't like pineapple, this fruit salsa is another one I like.
I like to prepare the fruit salsa a few hours in advance or even overnight.
Get your sous vide ready. I use my Instant Pot with Sous Vide, which works really nicely. Season the Swordfish and place it in the sous vide bag and release as much air as you can. You can also use a Food Saver and those kinds of bags.
It all depends on your budget and how much you want to invest in your sous vide cooking. I like using the Food Saver because I use it to divide large packs of meat into individual pieces for freezing, so it has multiple usages in my house.
When the bath reaches temperature, you will then place your swordfish in the sous vide.
Cook your swordfish as directed and when done remove from package and pat dry.
Heat oil in a pan, or get your grill going and sear your steaks. Then top with mango salsa.
What does swordfish taste like
Swordfish is a white-fish that is mild in flavor. You will find that this variety of fish is mild in fish flavor.
You will find that the areas that have redness to them will be stronger in flavor.
Can you eat swordfish skin
Swordfish skin is important to leave on as it will keep your fish moist as it cooks.
You don't want to eat the skin as it is very rubbery in texture. If you remove the skin before you cook, know that it can cause the fish to fall apart and dry out the fish.
What does the internal temp of swordfish need to be?
You need the internal temp of swordfish to be 130-135 degrees. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature on the largest part of the fish.
These side dishes go well with swordfish
- Fresh grilled veggies
- Mango Salsa
Can you eat the dark part of swordfish?
The dark part of the swordfish can be left if you would like. It will offer a very strong flavor, that will not affect the rest of the swordfish flavor.
Now, if you want to cut it out, go right ahead if you would like.
How do you keep swordfish moist?
Brushing your swordfish with oil is very important, as it will help to keep your swordfish moist.
You will find the delicate fish is very easy to dry out. I find that the Sous Vide helps lock in all the moisture and flavor preventing you from having dry fish.
Is Swordfish high in mercury?
Swordfish is higher in mercury. It is recommended to eat the fish in moderation, as you don't want to eat too much Swordfish at once.
