Today we had lunch with a light and tasty second course of fish, Swordfish with capers and cherry tomatoes, a quick and easy recipe that you can prepare in 10 minutes. This is a traditional south italian recipe...we're talking about Sicily :)
Serving size 2:
2 slices of swordfish
7-8 cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
10 salted capers
2 sage leaves
a little parsley
1 small piece of fresh ginger root
salt and pepper
extra virgin olive oil
fresh chives and marjoram for garnish
Remove the side skin from the swordfish and then cut it into cubes.
Soak the capers for 5 minutes, in the meantime wash and dry the tomatoes, cut them in half or into wedges according to your preferences.
In a non-stick pan pour extra virgin olive oil, add the crushed unpeeled garlic, the chopped capers and parsley, the peeled ginger and the sage. Sauté a minute then add the tomatoes.
Add the swordfish after you have sautéed the tomatoes a minute or two. Cook over low heat for 5/6 minutes, add salt.
Serve with ground pepper, chopped chives and a few marjoram leaves.
