Peter orders this grilled swordfish with garlic sauce dish when we eat out so he decided to make it to eat in and was pleased with the results.
The kids love swordfish which is a meaty and filling fish, and have eaten it from a young age, so this is something we cook for them as a treat on a weekend. They love garlic too and again ate this from a young age. Why don’t you offer it to your kids too?
4 swordfish steaks, 2cm /¾ in thick
ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving
a little fresh oregano or finely chopped flatleaf parsley, to serve
200 ml dry white wine
Wash the swordfish steaks and pat dry. Rub with pepper on both sides, but not salt as it dries the fish.
Peel and cut the garlic into slivers.
Heat a heavy ridged griddle pan on the hob. Fry the garlic then place each steak onto the griddle pan. Cook for 3 minutes then turn over. Add the wine and cook for a further minute.
Serve with a little oregano or parsley.
