swordfish steak and haricot vert

-photo by me

Swordfish steak is like, well, the steak of fish! It has such awesome flavor, and it is very filling. It is one of the few fish that Nick will eat other then salmon, so when I had the chance, I jumped for it. I had never made swordfish before, but nick talked of his parents and how they use to eat it when he was young, Its good to get a break from the usual fish we eat (salmon) so I came up with a recipe that was quick, healthy, and easy.

Swordfish Steak and Haricot Vert
1 lime (for two steaks)
1 tbs of crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tbs of black pepper
1 tbs fresh or dried parsley

Olive Oil 

2 bunches Haricot Vert
Salt and Pepper to taste
Almonds, cherry tomatoes (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Set your swordfish steaks in a bowl big enough to have each lay flat. Squeeze lime juice over the top. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and parsley. Let sit while oven preheats.

Take a piece of foil long enough to fit each steak and create an envelope over the two. Place the swordfish steaks in the middle of the foil, drizzle a small amount of olive oil or a dab of buter and fold each corner of the foil inward. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Meanwhile, prep your haricot vert by trimming of any ends. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick pan and add tomatoes and haricot vert. Saute for 2 minutes and then add almonds. Sprinkled with salt and pepper. 

This recipe is very easy and quick. I enjoy recipes that I can quickly make and ones that I don't have to run to the store for! This took very little effort and hardly any clean up (the best part)
