Swordfish is often cooked on the grill or in the oven, but the simplest way to cook a delicious, fresh swordfish steak is in the microwave. This large fish is high in vitamins B6, B12, D, as well as omega-3 fatty acids and protein, making it a highly nutritious meal. Microwaved in a tasty sauce, it's a relatively quick and easy one, too.
Things You'll Need
- 1 lb swordfish steak
- 1/2 tsp minced ginger
- 1 tbs soy sauce
- 1 tsp sherry
- 1 minced garlic clove
- Microwave-safe baking dish
- Wax paper
Wash the fresh swordfish steak under cool running water for 30 seconds to remove any dirt on the surface.
Add ginger, soy sauce, sherry and garlic in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
Pour the whisked sauce into your microwave-safe baking dish. Put the swordfish steak in the dish, turning it over to fully coat it with the sauce.
Place a piece of wax paper on top of the microwave-safe dish, then put the dish in the microwave.
Cook on "High" power for 6 minutes. Flip the swordfish steak over, then continue cooking for an extra 3 minutes to finish your dish.
