Braised Swordfish in Parsley Sauce is a really nice meal for two. It’s a great option for a weeknight meal, date night, in fact any night. The swordfish is braised just enough so that the cooked flakes melt in your mouth and is nicely infused with garlic, parsley and lemon juice. It’s delightful!
Swordfish has a subtle taste, perhaps a touch sweet. It’s moist when cooked, and I think it’s fabulous when braised. Braised Swordfish in Parsley Sauce is so flavorful and works perfectly with rice, quinoa or couscous. Veggies are good too. One side dish is all you need to make a perfect meal.
I really like parsley. Among other things, it’s an excellent ingredient in salads, juices and sauces. Parsley provides great health benefits. It’s a great source of folic acid, and vitamin c. and has strong anti-inflammatory properties, thus purported to help suppress arthritis. It also aids the reduction of water retention and bloating, and can help remedy the affects of diabetes. Parsley is a great herb, make sure it’s part of your diet in some way.
I tested this recipe a few times, Braised Swordfish in Parsley Sauce, is a result of some leftover parsley, a lot of leftover parsley in fact. For the first iteration I used cod instead of swordfish, which was fine, but I think swordfish works much better. However, you can mix this recipe up and use another kind of filleted or steak fish.
Braised Swordfish in Parsley Sauce is a somewhat hearty dish, so no need to go crazy with sides. Choose your favorite and enjoy.
