Swordfish with Tomatoes, Carrots and Celery

  • 10.09.12

We enjoyed a wonderfully pleasant long week-end and last night dinner was a request from my son.  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. Mashed potatoes is a great alternative to the pasta.

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

Bon Appetit!!


Tonight’s October 8, 2012 dinner:
