1 1/2 cups sauce


  • 4 4 ounce fresh or frozen swordfish steaks, cut about 1 inch thick

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 pound roma tomatoes, cored and quartered

  • ½ small onion, peeled and quartered

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary

  • ½ cup vegetable broth

  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoon finely snipped fresh basil or Italian parsley


  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels.

  2. Preheat broiler. Lightly coat a 15x10-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange tomatoes, onion, and garlic in pan; sprinkle with salt and crushed red pepper. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat 10 minutes; gently stir in the tomato paste to coat the vegetables. Broil about 5 minutes more or until vegetables begin to blacken at the edges.

  3. In a blender or food processor combine the tomato mixture and rosemary. Cover and blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a saucepan; stir in the broth. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered,12 to 15 minutes or until reduced to 1 1/3 cups. Stir in heavy cream. Cover sauce and keep warm. If desired, drizzle with olive oil.

  4. Lightly coat a broiler pan with cooking spray; place fish on pan. Brush both sides of fish with olive oil; season with black pepper. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily, turning once. Serve fish with sauce and, if desired, snipped basil.
