Fooding with Chef Chuck! Grilled Swordfish with Thai Peanut Sauce

This week’s post comes from Chef Chuck Kerber of Pittsburgh Hot Plate, and is part of a special day of shenanigans from other Pittsburgh Bloggers. You can see my post over on lil’ Burgers, where I talk about my hate for diets and love of delicious food.

I don’t make much fish (I wish I did – I’m just scurred!) but I have such a soft spot for Thai things. Take it away, Chef Chuck!

Grilled Swordfish with Thai Peanut Sauce

Swordfish is a substantial, meaty fish. The flesh is slightly sweet, yet robust. Thai Peanut Sauce goes perfectly with this particular seafood dish.

Prep time: 40 minutes

Pre-heat grill to 350-375 degrees

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 swordfish steaks, 6 oz. each- skin off
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cracked black pepper

Directions:

Massage each fillet with the extra virgin olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill the fish for 3-4 minutes a side on a 350-375 degree grill- remove from the grill and place on a platter.

For the Thai Peanut Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup sesame oil
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cracked clack pepper

Directions:

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender- mix until smooth.

Place a few tablespoons of the sauce over the swordfish- garnish with chopped scallions or chives, lime and lemon wedges, toasted sesame seeds, and crushed peanuts.

Boy does this look amazing.  I might have to take Chef Chuck’s lead and just make this.  Happy April Fool’s day, everyone!

  1. I don’t make fish either, but it sounds delish. Thanks for blogging for me today!
