Ingredients

  • 4 swordfish steaks about 6 oz (175g) each, skin removed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for the dish
  • 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 4 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • 2 tsp finely chopped rosemary
  • 1 tsp chopped thyme
  • ½ cup dry white wine

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Season the swordfish with salt and pepper. Lightly oil a large baking dish. Spread the fennel in the dish and season with salt and pepper.

Place the swordfish in the dish in a single layer. Top with the tomato and lemon. Mix the parsley, mint, rosemary, and thyme together, and sprinkle over the fish. Pour the wine and the oil over the fish. Cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 15–20 minutes, or until the fish look opaque when flaked with a knife. Serve immediately, with the pan juices.

Replace the swordfish with 4 fresh tuna steaks of the same weight. Throw in a handful of Kalamata olives and complete as above.
