Spanish Fish Recipes

One great thing about the village of Orce is that it has two fish mongers or "Pescaderias" they are open for business every Tuesday and Friday and the range of fresh fish they display is absolutely stunning. You can by everything from whitebait to full monkfish and dogfish.

Proprietors are always happy to offer advice on recipes and give cooking tips - after all they are the experts..

This week the staff explained a simple way to cook swordfish and we tried it that very night. The result was a lovely tender fillet, with subtle flavours.
You will need:

4 fillets of swordfish

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

fresh parsley roughly chopped

salt and pepper

How to cook:

1. Place the fish on a baking tray

2. Cover with lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper

3. Cook in a moderate oven for 20-25 minutes until the fish is tender.

4. Serve with salad and bread.

Swordfish steaks also make great tapas as the steaks are very quick to cook and can be served in bite size portions, great as part of a seafood starter too!
