Swordfish en Escabeche over Greens

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time:25 minutes + chill time

Cook Time:12 minutes

  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh swordfish
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large Spanish onion, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch squares
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch squares
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch squares
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest, julienned
  • pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bag mixed salad greens
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush swordfish with 2 tablespoons of oil. Grill fish until done. Set aside and let cool. Chop into bite-sized pieces and place in a square pyrex pan.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in skillet. Add onion and sauté for two minutes, then add peppers and garlic and continue cooking for about 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour in vinegar and add the seasonings. Cook for 5 more minutes. Adjust salt, as desired. Pour vinegar/vegetable mixture over swordfish. Sprinkle capers on top and chill covered, for at least 4 hours.
  4. Divide greens between four bowls and spoon swordfish mixture with vinaigrette over greens (if you feel like it needs it... the mixture is well-marinated, so just spooning the mixture over the greens might be enough for you).
