  • 4- 6oz swordfish steaks
  • 3 cloves of garlic sliced
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced + 1 lemon sliced
  • 5 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil + 2 tbsp
  • 2 shallots diced
  • 15oz can Cannellini beans
  • ¾ cup vegetable stock
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Marinate your swordfish by combining olive oil, lemon zest and juice, sliced garlic, rosemary, and salt and pepper in a bowl or shallow dish. Add the swordfish ensuring both sides are fully coated in the marinade.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. While the oven is preheating, heat a cast iron pan or oven proof skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, shallots, salt, and a pinch of red pepper flakes to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the shallots begin to turn translucent. Add your drained and rinsed beans to the pan. Using a fork, smash a third of the beans, creating a creamy stew consistency.
  4. Season the beans with salt and pepper. Add the vegetable stock and stir to combine. Lay the marinated swordfish over-top the bean and shallot mixture. Pour any extra marinade on top of the swordfish. Top each swordfish steak with a lemon slice.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Serve by spooning the bean mixture on the bottom of the plate and topping it with the swordfish. Serve extra lemon wedges on the side.


  • I like to serve this with quickly sauteed spinach or a simple arugula salad.
