It was good. Mine still came out a little dry and I felt the sauce/mixture overpowered the taste of the fish. Some people don't like the taste of fish though, so maybe it works for them.

TO DIE FOR!!!! This is the BEST recipe I've gotten from the internet and the best baked swordfish, or any fish, I've eaten! It is truly an authentic Italian recipe, even better than what I've en...

The first time I tried this recipe it was okay. After reading others reviews, I tried it again with spectacular results! I soaked the swordfish steaks in milk for about half an hour to remove th...

This swordfish recipe is EXCELLENT!!! Even my picky hubby ate it. It has the right flavor, and the raisins gave it a nice blend!

I really enjoyed this dish. The fish was very tasty and didn't have that 'fishy' taste. We enjoyed our swordfish with a nice Reisling. I would have given this recipe 5 stars if it had explain...

This was a great combination of flavors and the swordfish was ideal (very pricey!!) but an ideal "steak" without the fishey flavor. Even my son enjoyed it and he is not a fish eater. Rinse the...

This has to be one of the best recipes I have found on the internet!!!
