Swordfish alla pizzaiola is a healthy and tasty preparation that is baked in the oven with tomato, mozzarella, capers and oregano. It is a second dish of Calabrian origin, culinary pride mainly of the province of Reggio Calabria, where animal fishing is practiced and festivals are held (often in July) where various specialties belonging to the local tradition are offered, all based, precisely, swordfish.

2 garlic cloves, 15 g desalted capers, 1 large buffalo mozzarella, 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 60 g pitted black olives, oregano to taste, ground black pepper to taste, 4 slices swordfish (about 150 g each), ripe perini tomatoes 400 gr.

Cut the mozzarella into thin slices and place it on a plate to drain, blanch the tomatoes in boiling water and remove the skin, the internal seeds and cut them into small cubes. Then take a baking dish or a cake pan where you can lay the four slices of swordfish without overlapping them, pour two or three tablespoons of oil and place the fish, cover each of them with one (or more) slice of mozzarella, then sprinkle them with tomato ( previously salted), olives and capers (washed and squeezed) and oregano, finally sprinkle with minced garlic. Sprinkle the pan with 5 tablespoons of oil and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Serve very hot.
We must be very careful not to prolong the cooking of the swordfish further, as the result could give a very dry dish, and difficult to savor due to its dryness.

And I knew that if I came here I would find a good thing! Brava Sweettina .. swordfish is always dry but so it will surely be a whole other thing .. mmmm .. I'll make my partner happy with this recipe! Thanks for all these great ideas!

Amoruzza. but luckily here is a gourmet like you. Between us we understand each other. we take our men by the throat. D.

but you do it on purpose .. you always find something that I really like! fish is absolutely what I would never tire of eating. promise me that you will also give me the recipe for a delicious cous-cous with fish, you in the south make very good ones, you also have a festival dedicated to cous-cous, but now I don't remember if it's in Sicily or Puglia, forgive me!

to show: swordfish is dry if overcooked. it must have a very fast cooking. try and tell me!

Couscous is a specialty of African origin that has been handed down in Sicily for many years now due to the strong Arab influence in our island and mainly in Western Sicily (where I live). So you talk to a person who has eaten it regularly since she was a child (and granddaughter of the owner) and then in the summer, it is also cooked once a week with good fresh fish. I was really going to present the recipe to you one of these days, I will do it very gladly.
PS: The festival you are talking about is held in San Vito Lo Capo in the Province of Trapani.

hahaha! thank you! then sooner or later I will come for that occasion, so I will take a few kilos because I will not be able to detach myself from the stands so easily!

I have never eaten couscous .. in any way! But I will be delighted to try Sweettina's recipe! Last night I made swordfish .. actually cooking it at the right times is good and absolutely not dry at all .. but done so it was perfect because the tomatoes have kept it moist! For now it has always been a success .. I still have to make the omelette with shrimp and potatoes .. because my love doesn't really like the omelette! Let's wait for the cus cus then! But until Monday next what do I Sweettina? two recipes a week would be perfect .. hehe .. I expect too much right? Very, very good!

uhm. I guess I'm a big eater, then, because I love couscous even if I don't put anything on it. in addition to the African recipe, it is also very good with vegetables. but of course that with fish is just another thing!
