Baked Swordfish with Lemon

Baked Swordfish with Lemon


  • 4 6 oz. swordfish steaks
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 5 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s olive oil
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 15 oz. can Heinen’s cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ cup Heinen’s vegetable stock
  • Pinch of Heinen's red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 lemon, sliced for garnish


  1. Combine the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, sliced garlic, rosemary and salt and pepper in a bowl or shallow dish. Add the swordfish and toss, ensuring both sides are fully coated in the marinade.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. While the oven is preheating, warm a cast iron pan or oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp. of olive oil, the shallots, salt and a pinch of red pepper flakes to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the shallots begin to turn translucent. Add the beans to the pan. Using a fork, smash a third of the beans, creating a creamy stew-like consistency.
  4. Season the beans with salt and pepper. Add the vegetable stock and stir to combine. Lay the marinated swordfish overtop of the bean and shallot mixture. Pour any extra marinade on top of the swordfish. Top each swordfish steak with a lemon slice.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Serve by spooning the bean mixture on the bottom of the plate and topping it with the swordfish. Serve with sautéed spinach or a simple arugula salad and lemon wedges.
