Swordfish with tomatoes, capers and fettuccine

We enjoyed a wonderfully pleasant long weekend and last night’s dinner was a request from my son. 

Swordfish with Tomatoes, Carrots and Celery

He wanted fish with tomatoes and fettuccine. What a mom to do but say: “Yes, of course”.

The following recipe is not as long as it may seem. 

The swordfish cooked with the tomatoes remained very tender and there was plenty of juice and sauce to serve with the fettuccine.

The carrots and celery gave it a pleasant sweet flavor.

Mashed potatoes are a great alternative to pasta.

I used white wine, but any wine will be just fine.
