Pesce Spada

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 (6-ounce) swordfish or similar fish steaks, such as mako, or tuna, cut 1-inch thick
4 firm, ripe tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
Lemon juice, to taste
Lemon wedges, as an accompaniment


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk together the oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic and salt and pepper. In a shallow dish coat the fish steaks with the mixture and let marinate, covered and chilled, for 15 minutes. Arrange the fish in a foil lined baking pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until fish is just cooked. In a bowl toss the tomatoes with the basil and salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the fish to serving plates and top each with some of the tomato/basil salad. Sprinkle with lemon juice and garnish with lemon wedges.
