Swordfish steaks with Tomato-Basil Sauce

Swordfish steaks with Tomato-Basil Sauce created by kymgerberich

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 great base recipe and a novel way to cook swordfish that marries the tomato flavors well. I have made this twice now each time a little differently. Tonight I added steamed minced carrots to the tomatoes that I had leftover from another dish and lots of garlic and oregano.I pureed the sauce in a processor. Previously I used 2 cups of cherry tomatoes and lots of cumin and garlic. Both times this recipe came out great!
