Yield: 6 servings
6 Swordfish steaks
-(each about 1/2 lb
-and about 1 inch thick)
1 lg Sweet red pepper
3 tb Oregano, fresh
1 c Olive oil
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Black pepper,
White wine, dry
Remove seeds and ribs from pepper and cut into 1/4 inch cubes. Put in a
bowl and mix well with the juice of the two lemons, the olive oil, salt,
pepper and the oregano.
Heat broiler and pour wine to a depth of about 1/8 inch in a broiler pan.
Lay swordfish steaks in wine and broil for 3 minutes. Pour the seasoned
lemon, oil and oregano mixture over the fish and cook for 3 to 4 minutes
more (until fish is cooked through and lightly browned.) Immediately
transfer fish to a warmed serving dish.
You may need to reduce the sauce slightly by boiling vigorously and
stirring for 2 minutes more. Pour sauce over fish and serve.
* Swordfish steaks cooked with sweet red peppers -- This recipe was handed
out to people buying swordfish at my local fishmonger; I tried it and it
was delicious. It is also very quick and simple to make.
* I served fresh asparagus with this, but any light vegetable would be
fine. Boiled new potatoes would be nice, too.
