    Used different ingredients. This is absolutely delicious! I used baby spinach instead of rocket, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The sauce was a little too salty, so I will use low sodium soy next time. - 29 Sep 2008


    This is an absolutely incredible dish. I almost skipped the stuffing, but am so glad that I didn't. It really added to the flavour and interest. I did reduce the amount of rocket by half, though, and had plenty. It was a big hit with our family. My 11 year old son asked if we could have this swordfish every night. Even my 7 year old cleaned his plate. And as a bonus, it was surprisingly easy to make. We will definitely have this again. - 29 Sep 2008


    WOW! This recipe was delicious! The marinade is spectacular and the rocket and tomato mixture adds the finishing touch to this fantastic dish. If you want a palatable sensation then this is for you! - 29 Sep 2008
