"This is a great dish which I have cooked many times. They taste great cooked on the BBQ!"


6 Swordfish steaks
Coarsely ground black pepper
6 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. freshly chopped oregano or 2 tsp. dried
Sauce: 25 g (3/4oz) unsalted butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. finely shopped shallots
2 tbsp. red wine
1 tbsp. sherry vinegar
550 g (1 lb.) plum tomatoes peeled/seeded/diced
1 tbsp. shredded fresh basil leaves

  • Sprinkle swordfish steaks with pepper on both sides. Combined oil, lemon juice and chopped oregano in a dish large enough to take the steaks in a single layer and stir to blend.
  • Add the steaks, coating both sides with marinade. Set aside at room temperature for at least one hour turning them once or twice.
  • Either pre-heat grill or fire-up the BBQ
  • In a medium frying pan melt butter with the oil until sizzling, add the shallots and cook until soft.
  • Add wine and vinegar and reduce over a high heat, keep stirring for 1 minute. Reduce the heat and add tomatoes and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated. Stir in Shredded basil, season with salt and pepper and keep warm while cooking tuna steaks.
  • Cook the steaks over medium-hot coals or under the grill for 4 minutes each side, or until tuna is medium-rare in the centre. Serve with Lemon Rice or baked potatoes and a green salad.
