Florida Seafood Recipe

Blackened Swordfish Steaks

(Photo Below)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons dried marjoram
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1/4 cup olive oil
4  6-ounce swordfish steaks, 1 1/2 inches thick, skin removed

Combine the herbs, cayenne, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Heat an iron skillet over high heat 5 to 10 minutes until very hot. While pan is heating, brush the steaks on both sides with olive oil; pat herb mixture onto both sides of each steak. Place the steaks in the pan over high heat; cook for about 2 minutes. Turn steaks and cook for 2 to 6 minutes more, depending on thickness. (Note: May substitute commercially prepared blackening seasoning for spice mixture.)
