“This is a typical dish of southern Italy. Swordfish is marinated in a lemon and oil mixture, then fried and cooked with fava (broad) beans and white wine.” - by Salvatore
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- In a medium bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the fish and stir enough to get it coated. Let it marinate for about 15 minutes. Remove fish from the marinade, and pat dry.
- Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the onion until golden, then add the fish. Brown the chunks of fish on all sides, then remove from the pan, and set aside.
- Stir the flour into the skillet; cook and stir until lightly browned. Gradually stir in the white wine. Return the fish to the pan, and add the fava beans. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, cover, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve hot.

"maybe it was the fact that the recipe was poorly written, or that the fish is cooked too many times, but my family and I thought this dish was horrible. First off, 3 Tablespoons divided is 1½ Tbsp., y..." See moreet the first line says marinate the fish in 2 Tbsp. of oil. Secondly, The swordfish was way too tough from being marinated in lemon, which partially cooks it, being fried and THEN finally being boiled in wine.. and it was ALOT of wine. No time limit was stated as to boiling it off before putting the fish back in. We had rubbery swordfish in wine. Next time, I would not fry the fish with the onions and would put it in at the very end after the wine had completey cooked off."
"I originally gave this recipe 3 stars, thinking that the fava beans were no good. My notes I made on the recipe said they were "yucky" tasting. I have since made it again and have decided that this ..." See moreentire recipe is "yucky." I used canellini beans and it was baaad. My family hates it. I hate it. I threw this recipe away. I won't waste my time with it again."
