Look out for swordfish at your local fishmonger or shops. A great fish to bake in the oven.

  • 1 onion finely diced

  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 tablespoons green olives (black kalamata if you prefer)
  • Chopped mint and oregano
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedges to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 180oC.
  2. Mix all ingredients together with 2 tablespoons olive oil (except the swordfish).
  3. In a baking dish add in half the mixture.
  4. Place fish on top and poor over the remaining mixture.
  5. Drizzle with some more oil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
