This tasty fish dinner is a weeknight winner: it makes excellent use of a variety of pantry staples (mayonnaise, mustard, capers, and dried spices among them) and the swordfish itself is beautifully browned in just ten minutes or less.
Tip:This recipe can be doubled, but you’ll need to use two pans for the fish.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, and capers; stir until well blended.
In another small bowl, combine the paprika, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Brush the swordfish with 1 tsp. of the oil. Spread equal amounts of the paprika mixture onto both sides of the swordfish and let sit for 10 minutes.
In a large cast-iron or heavy-duty skillet, heat the remaining 2 tsp. oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the swordfish and cook until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the swordfish and continue to cook until the fish is cooked through (cut into it to check) and the second side is well browned, another 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with the rémoulade sauce.
Serve with rice and red beans.
