Grilled SwordFish with Hazelnut Miso
2 6- to 8- ounce swordfish steaks (about 1-inch thick)
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp. kosher salt, divided
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
6 shallots, peeled and halved
6 radishes, halved
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tbsp. sesame seeds
1/3 c. blanched unsalted hazelnuts, lightly crushed
2 tbsp. shiro miso
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1 clove garlic, grated
- Preheat grill to high heat. Season swordfish steaks with 1 tbsp. olive oil and 1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Grill until golden brown on both sides and fairly firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes total. Transfer to serving platter.
- In a large bowl, toss shallots and radishes with 1 tbsp. olive oil and 1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Grill, cut-side down until lightly charred and tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to serving platter.
- Make sauce: Heat a small saucepan over medium high heat (or place it right on outdoor grill). Add butter, sesame seeds, and hazelnuts. Stir often until nuts are a deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in miso, maple syrup, sesame oil, garlic, and 2 tbsp. water. Spoon all over swordfish and veg to serve.
