Baked Swordfish

Manuela Zangara, author of the blog Manu's Menu, shares her go-to recipe for busy weeknights. It's so good, it'll get even the kids to eat fish.

Servings: 4
Cuisine: Italian
Special Designations: Kid-friendly, Healthy

- 2 cloves garlic, chopped roughly
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt, to taste
- 4 swordfish steaks
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped


Preheat a convection oven to 350 degrees.

Put the chopped garlic together with the extra-virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of salt in a nonstick oven-safe skillet. Put the swordfish steaks on top and rub them around the pan. Turn them over, so they are all coated in oil and garlic, and add a little extra salt on top of each steak.

Bake for about 15 minutes. Then, add the lemon juice and chopped parsley and bake for another 5 minutes.

From the Chef, Manuela Zangara:

"This is one of the easiest recipes to make delicious and healthy fish. It is also the way I prefer eating swordfish, as it reminds me of my childhood. My mom would always make it this way at home and when there was swordfish for lunch or dinner, I would always be happy. This is a very good dish for children who do not enjoy eating fish too much, as swordfish steaks do not have bones. You can serve it with a simple green or tomato salad."
