Recipe

I like to use twists, shells, or ridged ziti for this dish: something that will catch all the tangy bits of olive and capers. What you want is the rich, exciting olive taste, so use lots and lots of finely chopped Greek olives.

Yield: 2 to 4 servings

Ingredients

  • ½ pound swordfish (1 inch thick)
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped Greek olives
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup thinly sliced onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • ½ pound pasta

Directions

Preheat the broiler and line the rack with aluminum foil. Broil the swordfish 3 minutes on one side, turn, top with the olives, and broil 4 minutes longer. In the meantime, pour the oil into a sauté pan and cook the onion and garlic until they are soft. Add the oregano and capers.

Cook and drain the pasta.

When the fish is cooked, take it out of the broiler and cut it into thin strips. Spoon it and the olives, with the onion-caper mixture, over freshly cooked pasta and toss gently.
