Seeing Seafood , Once Again

Sometimes you do not know what you are going to cook until you see it. This is what happened today .   Some real nice caught my attention while strolling around at Wholefoods Market.  It was a bit thicker than I wanted , so I asked the fish monger to slice it in half. The result: steaks about 1 inch thick. Exactly what I was looking for.

Fresh Swordfish Steaks in Lemon Fennel Sauce 

I wont spell out the ingredients here. The name says it all . And the picture should give you the visuals.

Swordfish Steaks in Fennel Lemon Sauce
Two significant tricks here to mention. First marinate the swordfish in some lemon juice for about half and hour . This will make it slightly more mild.  Second , braiise the fennel  a few minutes to soften them up . Then add lemon juice, capers (drained of excess vinegar .

Toss in a few tablespoons of finely chopped litely blanched lemon rinds for a special Mediterranean flavor.

Salute !
