Swordfish Provençal

I  know a lot of people that love ordering seafood at restaurants but HATE cooking it at home.  I am here to tell you to not be afraid of preparing fish in your own kitchen!  It is SO much cheaper than if you order in a restaurant and is such a quick meal to make after work.  Fish literally takes a couple minutes to prepare and is so healthy, I love incorporating it into my dinner at least twice a week. This week was Swordfish Provençal.  This particular recipe uses swordfish, which is one of my favorites.  I am a big fan of thicker and more oily fishes like swordfish and salmon, and this preparation would also be amazing with cod or tuna as well.  If you have a seafood phobia then let it go and make this for a healthy weeknight meal that tastes like restaurant quality for a fraction of the price!
