  1. In a medium bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the fish and stir enough to get it coated. Let it marinate for about 15 minutes. Remove fish from the marinade, and pat dry.
  2. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the onion until golden, then add the fish. Brown the chunks of fish on all sides, then remove from the pan, and set aside.
  3. Stir the flour into the skillet; cook and stir until lightly browned. Gradually stir in the white wine. Return the fish to the pan, and add the fava beans. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, cover, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve hot.

I originally gave this recipe 3 stars, thinking that the fava beans were no good. My notes I made on the recipe said they were "yucky" tasting. I have since made it again and have decided that...

this was great. I didn't have canned fava beans so I had to cook them myself. I cooked them in the pressure cooker which did an ok job, but left some of them mushy. this actually worked to thi...

I'd have to agree with some of the other comments about the reviewer who thought the fish was rubbery. They must be cooking-challenged or maybe they used inferior quality fish. I made this last...

Wow, what an amazing recipe! I went out on a limb and tried this recipe for the first time for some friends during a dinner party. The response was overwhelming! I had no problem with chewy f...

I saw this in my recipe book after forgetting about it for 2 years, and I remembered how much I liked it. I don't remember any rubbery fish problem. I can't wait to make it again!

Yummy. My husband isn't a big fan of sword fish. But this tastes pretty good.

This recipe had a good taste to it but was a little bit mushy because of the beans. I subsituted fava beans for white and pink beans. I would of got the fava beans but the grocery store didn't ...
