Swordfish steaks

Tuesday, 1st January 2013
Our first meal of 2013 was a bit of a last minute thing. On New Year's eve we went out shopping but discovered everything was closing at 2pm, a bit earlier than we expected, and before we had any food for the next day. Luckily one supermarket, with a nice fish counter, was still open and we managed to get these swordfish steaks.
I fried them quickly in a hot griddle pan, then put the pan in a medium-hot oven for about 10 minutes to finish. For the sauce I just gently cooked some chopped onion until it was just starting to colour, then added a half glass of white wine and let that mostly bubble away. Then a squeeze of lime juice and some cream and seasoning.
Served with wakame salad, lightly steamed salsify and sautéed potatoes, which came out perfectly after boiling, then frying on a medium heat in a mix of oil and butter.
If all the meals in 2013 come out this well, we'll be very happy!
