Swordfish steaks cooked with sweet red peppers

This recipe was handed out to people buying swordfish at my local fish monger; I tried it and it was delicious. It is also very quick and simple to make.


(Serves 6)


  1. 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.
  2. Heat broiler and pour wine to a depth of 1/8 inch in a broiler pan. Lay swordfish steaks in wine and broil for 3 minutes.
  3. 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.)
  4. Immediately transfer fish to a warmed serving dish.
  5. You may need to reduce the sauce slightly by boiling vigorously and stirring for 2 minutes more.
  6. Pour sauce over fish and serve.


I served fresh asparagus with this, but any light vegetable would be fine. Boiled new potatoes would be nice, too.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 20 minutes.
Precision: no need to measure.
