Rafaella Giamundo always cooks the fish in plenty of olive oil, to make extra of the delicious pan juices for dipping bread.

  1. 4 pounds swordfish steaks, about 1/2 inch thick
  2. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  3. 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 8 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  5. 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  6. 1/2 packed cup mint leaves
  1. Season the swordfish with salt and pepper. In each of 2 very large skillets, heat 1/2 cup of the olive oil until shimmering. Add the swordfish in a single layer along with the garlic and vinegar. Cover and cook over moderate heat until the fish is opaque throughout, about 5 minutes. Add the mint leaves and cook until wilted. Using a slotted spatula, transfer the swordfish to a large platter. Pour half of the pan juices on top and serve immediately. Pass the remaining pan juices separately.
