Epic Hemmingway Style Swordfish Recipe

Every year fisherman from all over the world travel to the Florida Keys with their sights set on battling a prized Swordfish on rod and reel. While serving in Iraq, United States Navy Pilot, John White envisioned himself fishing in the Florida Keys. When he returned from Iraq after 9 years he and his wife went fishing in the Florida Keys.

"Pam with the Giant"

On their way out to the fishing grounds his wife Pam apparently told the charter boat captain that they would indeed catch a swordfish guaranteed, because they were lucky.   The trip was major success and even made national news. In true Papa Hemmingway fashion they returned to the dock with a 455 lb. Swordfish!

Celebrate this epic catch, just like Hemmingway would have with this amazing recipe for swordfish steaks.

2 pound of Swordfish
2 Tablespoons (Tbs.)Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup Margarine or Butter, softened
3 Tbs. Mayonnaise
3 Tbs. Chopped Green Onion (scallions)
2 Teaspoons - Fresh Garlic Chives, chopped
1/4 tsp. Salt
Tabasco Sauce to Taste (approx. 1/8 tsp.)

Place swordfish steaks in single layer on baking dish. Brush with lemon juice. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix well, and set aside.  Broil steaks 6 - 8 inches from heat from 8-10 minuts until fish flakes easily with fork.  Remove from heat. Spread with cheese mixture. Broil an additional 2 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.  For presentation garnish with lemon slices and chives.
