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.
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.
