Dill Pickle Tartar Sauce:

Caper Powder:


  1. Pulse the panko and potato chips together in a food processor. Crack the eggs into a casserole and whisk. Place the swordfish steaks between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound thin with a mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle each steak with salt and pepper. Dip the fish into the egg wash, then crumbs, then egg wash, then crumbs again, coating each side.
  2. Put a third of the oil in a large saute pan and heat. Once hot, add 2 pieces crusted fish and brown the first side. Flip each piece, add 2 tablespoons butter and shake the pan vigorously so that the butter stays frothy the entire time, until fish is golden brown. Remove from heat and place on a wire rack over a cookie tray. Repeat with remaining fish, oil and butter. Serve with Dill Pickle Tartar Sauce and lemon halves, and dust the dish with Caper Powder.
