Grilled Opah with Olives

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

With many tuna species on the decline, Erik Anderson of Nashville's Ortolan likes meaty, mild Hawaiian opah.

  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. Extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 anchovy fillet, chopped
  4. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. 1 tablespoon Italian pine nuts
  6. 4 teaspoons chopped capers
  7. 2 Picholine olives, pitted and finely chopped
  8. 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  9. Salt
  10. Four 6-ounce opah steaks (or swordfish steaks), cut 1 inch thick
  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook over moderate heat until the butter browns slightly and smells nutty, 2 minutes. Add the anchovy, crushed red pepper, pine nuts, capers, olives and lemon juice and cook for 1 minute. Season with salt and remove from the heat.
  2. Rub the opah with oil and season with salt. Grill over high heat until just cooked through, 1 1/2 minutes per side. Slice each steak into 4 pieces. Spoon the topping over the fish and serve.
Notes Opah is available at specialty fish markets or at honolulufish.com.
