Seared Swordfish with Lemon and Rosemary Wine Sauce

I know a lot of my Weekend Cooking posts are about seafood. I'm lucky to have a wide variety of fresh fish and shellfish available at Wegmans and we routinely eat it at least a couple times each week. During the summer months, it's mostly grilled, but a recent streak of rainy evenings sent me back into the kitchen. With fresh swordfish in the refrigerator and grilling no longer an option, I turned to Pinterest for ideas and found a recipe for Seared Swordfish with Lemon and Rosemary Wine Sauce at Simple Comfort Foods.


Pan-searing is, without a doubt, my favorite technique for cooking seafood indoors.  It's quick, easy, and I love the slightly crisp, flavorful crust it produces. With basic ingredients on hand and fresh rosemary and thyme just waiting to be picked from my herb garden, selecting this recipe was a no-brainer. This dish was outstanding - definitely as good as anything from my favorite restaurant. The recipe can be found here.

To learn more about the technique, here is Wegmans Pan-Searing Seafood video. It's 4 minutes well-spent even if you're a pan-searing pro!


Pan-searing can also be used to cook chicken and meats... and Wegmans has videos for that, too. In fact they have, the have a variety of videos on various cooking techniques as well as specific recipes. Even if there isn't a Wegmans in your area, you can still check out their YouTube channel.

Do you ever watch cooking videos on YouTube? Any favorites to share?

  3. I wish I was more adventurous when it comes to seafood. The only thing I've eaten a lot of is shrimp and I developed an allergy as an adult so I can't eat it anymore. Since I don't know what I'm doing I'm always hesitant to try seafood. Your Swordfish looks amazing! Pan searing is my go to way to cook most meats when I'm short on time.

  6. This sounds fantastic! I would give anything for a Wegman's but we don't have those here. :( Although I am in Florida and have easy access to seafood. I agree with you about pan-searing. Its my favorite method as well, especially for salmon. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  7. Haha! I feel like I could have written this post! Most of my Weekend Cooking posts are about seafood as well and pan searing is also my favorite indoor seafood cooking method :) I usually marinate swordfish in lemon, olive oil, rosemary, and garlic before grilling...this wine sauce sounds like a fantastic indoor substitute. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for stopping by today!

  10. My family does not like fish and hates when I cook it for myself so fish is usually not on the menu, but I love it.

    1. Ti - I know how that goes. I love omelets and frittatas, but my husband won't eat them, so we never have it.
