Swordfish with Sweet-Sour Sauce

  • SERVINGS: 6
  • FAST
  • HEALTHY
  1. 1/3 cup golden raisins
  2. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
  4. 2 large garlic cloves, very thinly sliced
  5. 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  6. 2 tablespoons small capers, rinsed
  7. 2 bay leaves
  8. Pinch of dried oregano
  9. Pinch of crushed red pepper
  10. 1 pound ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  11. Salt
  12. 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  13. 1 teaspoon sugar
  14. Six 8-ounce swordfish steaks, without skin, cut 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick
  15. Freshly ground pepper
  1. In a small bowl, soak the raisins in warm water for 10 minutes; drain.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 cup of the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onion, garlic, pine nuts, capers, bay leaves, oregano and crushed pepper and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, season with salt and cook until the tomatoes are slightly broken down, about 3 minutes. Add the raisins, vinegar and sugar and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes longer. Discard the bay leaves.
  3. In each of 2 medium skillets, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil until shimmering. Season the swordfish with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, turning occasionally, until browned outside and just cooked through, about 6 minutes. Spoon the sauce onto plates, top with the swordfish and serve.
Make Ahead The sweet-sour sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Suggested Pairing

The tangy swordfish demands a round, fruity wine such as a Chardonnay blend from Italy.
