    Here's what you'll need...

    • 2 sword fish steaks
    • 200g kale
    • 50g olives
    • 50g capers
    • White wine
    • Red wine vinegar
    • Fennel
    • Paprika
    • 2 onions
    • Handful of fresh basil
    • 40g pine nuts
    • 200g prunes
    • 150g golden raisins
    • 4 garlic bulbs

    Here's how it's done...

    Step 1

    First, slice the olives and prunes, add to a bowl and cover with the white wine. Add the golden sultanas to the bowl and cover with red wine vinegar.

    Step 2

    Slice the onions and crush or finely slice the garlic. Then, over a medium heat, fry both in a pan with some olive oil.

    Step 3

    Once the onions have softened, add the olives, prunes and sultanas to the frying pan and cook over a medium heat for three minutes, and then remove from the heat. Reserve the pan.

    Step 4

    Slice the fennel and add to a saucepan along with the paprika, and fry with olive oil. Mix in the kale and cook over a low heat until the kale starts to wilt.

    Step 5

    Season both sides of the swordfish with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then, using the reserved frying pan, heat some oil and add in the fish. Cook each side for 5-6 minutes, or until the fish is firmed, browned and flaky. Once cooked, return the olive, caper and sultana mixture to the pan for another minute or so.

    Step 6

    Serve the swordfish and capers over the fennel.
