DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute the garlic, shallots and red pepper flakes in the butter cubes for 5 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and shrimp and continue sauteing until the shrimp turns pink. Add 1 to 2 ounces of the wine and simmer a bit before adding the scallions. Add the crabmeat. Then add the breadcrumbs, to tighten up the stuffing, and season with salt and pepper. Let the mixture cool completely (3 to 5 minutes) before stuffing the swordfish portions.
  • Prior to cooking the swordfish, sprinkle it with salt and pepper and lightly dust with the flour. Then, once the stuffing is cool and the fish is seasoned, cut a 2-inch slit at the top of the fish and make a pouch with your fingers. Fill the pouch with the stuffing.
  • Saute the swordfish in a skillet over medium-high heat in the clarified butter. After lightly browning one side of the fish, about 3 minutes, flip it over and place in the oven to finish cooking, about 8 minutes.
  • Once the fish is done, take the pan out of the oven, add the pinch minced garlic to the pan and lightly brown over medium-high heat. Then deglaze the pan with the remaining wine. Add the fish stock and lemon juice to the pan and tighten up the sauce. Season the pan sauce with a little salt and add the parsley.
  • Take the swordfish out of the pan and place on a serving dish. Make any adjustments to the sauce before serving over the fish.
  • Serve on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes.
