Food week - Saturday: Swordfisch with tomato mint sauce

This is a very sophisticated recipe. The fresh mint leaves give a very special taste to the tomato sauce.

Ingredients (for two):
2 swordfish fillets
2-3 garlic cloves
2 medium size onions
500 g fresh tomatoes
20 fresh mint leaves
olive oil

Chop the garlic and onions into fine pieces. Wash and cut the tomatoes into small chunks. Season the swordfish with salt and black pepper. In a preheated pan fry the garlic and onions in a little olive oil. When they turn golden add the tomato chunks and turn the heat down. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes and season with salt and black pepper. In the meantime chop the mint leaves and sear the seasoned swordfish in a preaheated pan from both sides for about 4 minutes each.
Serve the swordfish on a large plate with the tomato sauce and sprinkle the mint leaves over sauce. Serve with pasta and green veggies.
