    barefootmommawv's Note:

    I saw Lidia Bastianich make this on the Martha Stewart Show a while back ago. I haven't made it yet but plan on it soon. **Note: To me there is way to much salt in this dish I would advise you cut back on it. I wanted to post exactly how it was written on Marth Stewart dot com.

      As written we found this to be pretty bland. I subbed basil - which has a mintyness to it for the mint as it was too cold, dark and rainy to go foraging for my mint. I also used albacore in place of the swordfish as they are similar in taste and texture. I ended up adding several cloves of garlic and garlic granules, pepper, pesto and red wine to give it some umph. After reading the notes I only lightly salted the fish, and didn't salt the onions but my plum tomatoes from Trader Joe's have no added salt so I needed to add salt to the sauce in the end. I make a similar dish with chicken but use a jar of TJ's marinara sauce, (this is one of those great no brainer quick meals). I really liked the alternative of using fish, that along with serving it over whole wheat pasta made this a very healthy dinner choice. Made for PAC Fall 09
