Caesar roasted swordfish.

For Christmas my son give me the latest Ina Garten cookbook. I love her easy cooking style, and all of her recipes are always a success.

Swordfish has never been one of my favorite fish. I always found it too dry and therefore always stayed away from it.  Well, the following recipe made me change my mind.  The swordfish marinated with the sauce of lemon juice, garlic,Dijon mustard, anchovies and parley consequently  made the fish so tender. Out of this world.

Squeezing the lemon wedges over prior to enjoy it, will enhance the flavor.

The anchovies paste brings a great flavor to it, hence do use it.

  • 2 large and chopped garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon paste of anchovies
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon grated zest of lemon
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 pounds center cut swordfish
  • 1/2 cup white part only chopped scallions
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons drained capers
  • wedges of lemon


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.

  2. For the Caesar sauce, place the garlic, parsley, anchovy paste and mustard in the bowl of the food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse until the garlic is minced. Add the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and pulse to make a smooth sauce.

  3. Place the swordfish steaks on the pan and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Save one third of the sauce to serve with the cooked fish. Spread the fish one side and all sides with half of the remaining sauce, turn and spread the remaining sauce on the second side. Sprinkle with the scallions and allow to stand for 5 to 10 minutes.

  4. Roast the fish for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the center is just barely cooked. Cover the fish with aluminum foil and allow to rest on the pan for 10 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small sauté pan until very hot, add the capers and cook for 30 to 60 seconds, until they start to pop and are a little crisp. Serve the swordfish hot with the lemon wedges, frizzled capers and the reserved Caesar sauce.
