Piccatas are a classic part of Italian cuisine and includes a refreshing sauce of lemon juice, butter, and fresh parsley. Swordfish is mildly flavored with a dense and meat-like flesh, making it perfect for broiling.

  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • lemon rounds


  • Pepper swordfish cutlets and place on a broiling pan. Broil fish for 1-1/2 minutes on each side or until flesh turns opaque.
  • Remove swordfish from broiling pan and place on a heated serving platter. Sprinkle with parsley, lemon juice and capers. Garnish with lemon rounds.
