Pesca Spada in Agrodolce

  • Six 6 oz skinless swordfish steaks
  • salt and fresh ground pepper
  • seasoned flour for dredging
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup Monari Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 tbs small capers
  • 1 tbsp golden raisins


Season both sides of the swordfish steaks lightly with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece in seasoned flour and shake off any excess. In a large non-reactive skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add the steaks and cook, until brown, approx. 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a platter and cover to keep warm. Discard the vegetable oil and carefully wipe out the pan. Add the olive oil, butter, and a pinch of flour to the skillet. Place over medium heat and shake the pan until the butter is just browning. Add the wine and vinegar and bring to a boil. Reduce the liquid to the consistency of a light syrup, approx. 4 minutes. Stir in the drained capers and the raisins. Return the swordfish steaks to the pan to coat with the sauce. Arrange on a platter and coat with the remaining sauce. ENJOY!!!!
