• 2 swordfish steaks, ~6 oz each
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheese
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • a few leaves of fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Trim skin from swordfish steaks, if any remains.
  3. Mix the bread crumbs, grated cheese, black pepper, cayenne pepper and a little bit of the cilantro. Press swordfish firmly into bread mixture so that it sticks to the fish. Flip and do the same for the other side.
  4. Heat oil in skillet until very hot, but before it starts to smoke. Place swordfish in hot oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes (until crusted side is brown). Turn and cook the other side until golden brown as well.
  5. Once both sides have been cooked, remove and place in baking dish and place remaining bread crumbs over top.
  6. Bake at 400 for 8 to 10 minutes.
  7. Serve with desired sides and garnish with cilantro. (Tastes great served with Parmesan couscous and asparagus).
