Zagat Review

"Incredibly wonderful seafood. Order all your fresh and frozen fish from them. Known for their cocktail shrimp. It does not get better than this. This is definitely the place to go when you are entertaining and want the very best.” -Susan Monday, Zagat

Swordfish – The Steak of the Sea

Swordfish is a delicacy of the deep that you've by no doubt heard of and have likely enjoyed several times. In our opinion, everything always tastes a little better when you really know all the ins and outs of it, and therefore we present to you this guide full of facts about swordfish and the best ways to cook swordfish.

The Swordfish is a very long and large predatory fish which possesses a long, flat bill that has the appearance similar to that of a sword. While swordfish don't exactly stab or slice up their prey, they do use their sharp bills to injure and slow their prey, thus immobilizing it and making it much easier to capture and eat.

Swordfish are quite unique among other fish, especially predatory species, in that as they reach maturity, they begin to shed their teeth. This continues until they are completely without teeth. While one would assume that this is a detriment, swordfish aren't troubled; they just swallow their prey whole.
