My husband is a picky eater and my daughter is a pescatarian, so when she comes over for dinner, mealtime is a compromise. Lucky for me, everyone in the family likes swordfish. It is meaty in texture, yet mild in taste.
For this dish, the swordfish it is simply seasoned with salt and pepper. It is then pan-seared until the outside develops a brown crust and the inside is opaque throughout.
The swordfish is topped with blue cheese pesto, which is made with basil, pumpkin seeds, lemon juice...and of course blue cheese. The pesto is herbaceous from the basil, piquant from the cheese, and citrusy from the lemon. It is full of flavor yet compliments the swordfish beautifully.
I serve this dish with rice, baked potato, or mashed potato for an easy and delicious family dinner. It always pleases.
