BLACKENED BLOCK ISLAND SWORDFISH

BLACKENED BLOCK ISLAND SWORDFISH


2 ½-3 lbs. fresh swordfish steaks, about 1” thick

2 Tbs. Dish off the Block Ragin' Cajun Spice Blend

2 Tbs. Italian breadcrumbs

3 Tbs. olive oil


Remove swordfish steaks from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature, about 20-30 minutes before cooking.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


Combine the Cajun spice mix and breadcrumbs in a small bowl.  


Rub this mixture all over the swordfish on both sides to create a solid coating.


Heat the olive oil over high heat in a cast iron skillet until almost smoking.  


Add the swordfish steaks and sear on both sides for about 2 minutes per side until dark brown and crispy.  


Place the skillet in the oven and continue to cook until the fish is JUST cooked through, about 5-8 minutes depending on the thickness of the steaks.  The fish is done when a knife or fork inserted in the center goes in and out easily.  Do not overcook!


This is a spicy dish that goes great with a creamy risotto and fresh summer salad or corn on the cob!
