Cook it with:
Makes: 4 - 6 servings
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes


  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Filippo Berio Pure Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 kg (2 lbs) swordfish steaks or Halibut, Tuna or Salmon
  • 567 g to 680 g (1 ¼ to 1 ½ lbs) red-skinned potatoes cut into 5 cm (2-inch) chunks


Grate the lemon zest into a large glass or ceramic dish. Cut the lemon in half. Set one half aside. Squeeze the juice from the other half. Add the juice, 3 tablespoons oil, bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and all but 2 teaspoons of the rosemary to the dish. Stir to mix. Add the swordfish, and dip both sides of the steaks in the mixture to coat. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a single layer in a shallow microwaveable dish. Cover with waxed paper. Microwave for 8 to 10 minutes, or until a knife easily pierces the flesh. Remove and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon oil, and 2 teaspoons rosemary. Toss to coat; set aside at room temperature.

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking, firing briquettes or lighting the gas on one side of the grid only.

Toss the potatoes. Remove the potatoes from the dish and place directly over the heat. Grill, turning every 1 or 2 minutes, until browned all over. Move the potatoes to the side of the rack away from direct heat. Cover and grill for 20 minutes.

With the potatoes still on the grill, place the fish steaks directly over the heat for 3 to 4 minutes each side, or until the crumbs are browned and the steak is opaque in the center. Cut the swordfish into serving portions.

Cut the reserved lemon half into wedges to serve with the swordfish.
