Bacon Wrapped Swordfish Steaks

I had a vision while at Sprouts last week.  I was standing at the butcher counter waiting my turn and eyeing the swordfish steaks.  I wondered how amazing the fish would taste if I wrapped bacon around it.  I decided to try it and I’m so glad I did.  While the butcher was waiting on me, he mentioned an oil they sell, right in front of the meat counter, called garlic oil.  He said this would be really good rubbed over the swordfish so I bought it. If you can’t find garlic oil, this would be easy enough to make. I would take several cloves of garlic (peeled and whole) and heat it in a pan with olive oil to infuse the olive oil.

I sprinkled kosher salt, pepper and oregano over both sides of the fish.  After that, I poured the garlic oil over the fish and spread it around with my fingers to mix the oil and seasonings together.  Next, I wrapped the bacon around the swordfish and sprinkled fresh ground pepper over the bacon. I put it in the oven to bake for 50 minutes at 375 degrees. This was a very large swordfish steak, hence the reason it took a while to bake.

I roasted mini heirloom tomatoes and asparagus in olive oil, kosher salt and pepper for 30 minutes.  I served the fish over the asparagus and tomatoes. You could make green beans to serve with the fish instead of the asparagus … this would taste great as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 swordfish steak
  • 2 tablespoons garlic oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 5 pieces of bacon (I used 40% reduced fat)

Directions

Sprinkle half the kosher salt, half the pepper and half the oregano on each side of the fish. Pour 1 tablespoon on each side of the swordfish. Spread it over the fish with your fingers to mix the oil and seasonings together. Wrap the bacon around the fish and lay on a rack on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees.  My fish took 50 minutes to cook, if you have a smaller piece, it may not take as long. Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
