DIRECTIONS

  • In a blender or food processor, combine the basil, garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan, parsley, water, and oil.
  • Process until smooth.
  • Season the swordfish steaks with the salt and pepper.
  • Also, season the pesto with salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Preheat the broiler (or your oven- to 400 if thats what you're using).
  • Coat a broiler pan with no-stick spray.
  • Slice the fish through its side, cutting nearly to the skin.
  • Be careful not to cut the fish in half.
  • Stuff the fish with the pesto, reserving a few tablespoons of pesto.
  • Spread the reserved pesto on the top and bottom of the fish.
  • Place the fish on the prepared pan and broil 4" from the heat for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the fish over halfway through the cooking time.
  • Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
  • (I imagine the cook-time in the oven would be roughly the same- 20 minutes total, turning once, half-way through.).
  • (To intensify the flavor, cover and refrigerate the stuffed fish for up to 8 hours.).
