Lemon Swordfish

Sometimes I'm just so sick of chicken. Sometimes I just have those days where I'm craving something substantial and filling, and chicken or steak just won't cut it. Sometimes, you need a hearty fish to step in, take control of the meal and show all how it's done. For me, swordfish is this hearty fish I crave when I'm in one of these types of moods. A flaky white swordfish steak fits this job perfectly, offering a   robust dish, while having a lighter effect then poultry or meat. When I cook fish I'm all about keeping it simple. In this case, a delicate lemon marinade is made that doubles as the sauce as well, creating a light lemony fish that's flavorful, simple, and clean. If you're scared of cooking fish, don't be. This is not only one of the easiest things in the world, but is also is healthee and is beyond tastee. SO, let's mix it up with some fish yo.
Lemon Swordfish, serves 6

3 large swordfish steaks, (1/2 a steak per person)
3 lemons
1/3 cup olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced finely
3 sprigs fresh thyme leaves
3 sprigs fresh oregano leaves
garlic powder

Recipe: Clean your swordfish steaks and place in a large plastic bag. In a bowl combine the juice of 3 lemons, olive oil, garlic, and herbs. Whisk until well combined. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Be generous with the salt. Pour 2/3 of the marinade into the plastic bag with the fish, shake the bag to ensure that the marinade coats each steak. Seal the bag and marinate for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours, in the fridge. Set the remaining 1/3 of the sauce in the fridge.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Pour the contents of the plastic bag into a casserole dish, juices and all. Arrange the steaks so they are not overlapping. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Turn heat to broil, and cook for an additional 5, until the tops begin to brown. Remove from oven.
While the fish is cooking, heat the remaining 1/3 sauce in a skillet on the stove until warm.
Serve the fish with the sauce on the side.
