Swordfish Steaks (2 Lb. Avg)
When you shop at Wholey’s Market, you can expect nothing but the finest quality fish and meats to delight even the pickiest eaters. Whether you want to try something out of the ordinary or swordfish happens to be your favorite seafood delicacy, our swordfish steaks deliver a flavor to be reckoned with. Wild-caught off the icy coast of Block Island, each premium swordfish order weighs approximately two pounds and will be perfect for big holiday dinner parties or other special occasions.
Our remarkable swordfish steaks are great for kabobs during a summer barbecue, in a stir fry with a little teriyaki sauce, and as a healthier alternative to pork chops or steaks. This meaty fish is made for the grill and its texture prevents the steak from falling apart so you can avoid messy cleanups or other culinary blunders. Most seafood lovers prefer to leave the skin on while grilling to keep the meat moist, but remember to remove the skin before serving. These mouthwatering steaks are also great for stewing, because they won’t dissolve and the flavor is heightened when simmered with sauces, vegetables, or broths.
Please note that East Coast swordfish tends to be a little rosier than Pacific swordfish due to diet, but all our swordfish steaks are selected and packaged to meet your satisfaction and exceed your expectations. Swordfish tastes excellent when paired with asparagus spears, rice, or any of your favorite side dishes. Skewering and broiling are other popular preparation methods. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a member of our team today so we may better assist you.
