    This is a very easy fish recipe with a nice fresh tang from the green herb topping. You could also cook the fish on the barbecue.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 (180g each) swordfish steaks
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
    • 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
    • 2 handfuls of rocket, coarsely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Wash and pat dry the swordfish steaks; season each with salt and pepper; completely coat each steak with olive oil.
    2. Heat a heavy frypan or a chargrill over medium heat; cook the steaks for 3-5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
    3. While the steaks cook, stir together the garlic, parsley, basil, rocket and lemon juice in a bowl until evenly coated; spoon over the cooked steaks to serve.

    I tried a very similar recipe out and Yes - it is easy, tasty. My fish steaks were a firm white fish about 20 mm thick. Cooked on a "Weber Q" BBQ at 200c for 4 minutes each side. - 06 Aug 2011
