Black Lime Swordfish compliments of Richard Blais and Four Flamingos

When I reviewed 4 Flamingos: A Richard Blais Florida Kitchen my favorite entree was the Black Lime Swordfish in brown butter. It was just simply just one particular of the finest parts of fish I have experienced in a long time. So I was thrilled when Blais agreed to share the recipe.

In the online video under, Blais discusses how the cafe arrived about, and his chef de cuisine, Shelby Farrell, walks us by means of the procedure of cooking the swordfish.

Check out the video then give the recipe down below a try out.
