Swordfish Masala with the flavours of India



  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large heavy-bottomed non-stick pan) and gently sauté the garlic, onion and ginger until reasonably tender, regularly stirring.
  • Add the spices with the chilli paste and briefly toss to toast.
  • Then add the tomatoes with about ½ cup stock, the sugar, mustard and seasonings. Mix well and cook down until thick and fragrant, adding more stock if needed.
  • Add the juice of ½ lime with the roasted capsicum and coriander. Mix, briefly cook and taste for seasoning.
  • Then cook the seasoned fish on a preheated ridged grill (or BBQ), squeezing with the juice of ½ lime as you do so and keeping the fish a little pink in the centre.
  • Spoon the sauce on individual plates, top with the fish and serve with steamed green vegies on the side.
