The Instacart guide to swordfish fillets
About swordfish fillets
Swordfish is a white-flesh fish with a mild taste and meaty texture that is usually sold as swordfish fillets or steaks. The swordfish is a migratory predator and can be found in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. This fish has a distinct look with a long, flat bill that they use as a sword to slash at their prey.
Swordfish are large and can weigh over 1,000 pounds, but the commercially fished swordfish usually weigh between 50 to 200 pounds. Since the swordfish is a predator, it tends to be a lean fish. The thick flesh of this fish is ideal for pan-roasting or grilling, but it can overcook quickly because it is so lean. The flesh has a sweet, mild flavor that turns from pink to white and is tender and moist when cooked properly.
When choosing swordfish, there are few things you should look out for. Make sure the veins are bright red. If they are a darker color, it means the fish is getting old. Look for ivory-colored flesh that is almost translucent. If the swordfish is frozen or old, it will have an opaque color. If you notice any red spots, it indicates that the fish was stressed when caught. This can change the texture, and it's not as good as uniform ivory flesh.
