    FlemishMinx's Note:

    My own invention, a quick and easy "something". I thought it would make a nice combination, and wasn't disappointed. Whenever available, I substitute fresh basil for the dried spice.

      This is a nice base recipe and a novel way to cook swordfish that marries the tomato flavors well. I made a few changes: I used 2 cups of cherry tomatoes and 3 tablespoons of fresh basil cooked down in 1/4 cup of chicken broth with garlic , 1 teaspoon of cumin and lots of pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. At the end I swirled in some fresh pesto I had just made.

      Great recipe!!! Just right for 2! It has just enough acidity and the basil flavor marries well! "Another keeper!!" says DH! Thank you!

      Excellent! Up to now, I have only enjoyed swordfish if it is grilled with lemon/salt/pepper. This can be a real bummer when the temperature is freezing outside. I'm so happy to have come across this recipe. I used basil from my garden that I dried on my own and cut it into thin strips. I probably used 4 times the amount called for. The chopped fresh tomato combined with the basil strips made an incredible sauce. This was a moist and flavorful meal that I look forward to enjoying many more times. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
