Serves: 4
Prep time: 50 mins
Cook time: 10 mins


  • 2 x 120g fillets swordfish
  • 140ml grapeseed oil
  • ¾ cup of loosely packed fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled
  • 20g Parmesan, finely grated
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1½ tsp red wine vinegar
  • ½ radicchio, leaves separated and torn
  • 4 good quality anchovy fillets


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a medium pan over medium heat and add the breadcrumbs. Toss to coat in oil and cook for 4-5 minutes. Regularly checking and tossing a few times to ensure the breadcrumb mixture is crisp and evenly golden. Drain on paper towel.
  2. For the dressing, combine 3 anchovies, garlic, Parmesan, mustard and yolks in a jug and blend with a hand-held blender. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the remaining oil (reserve a tablespoon). Once the dressing is thick and creamy, mix in the vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste. If too thick add a splash of water.
  3. Oil and season the swordfish and sear for 1-2 minutes on each side (I like it to be still slightly rare in the centre but if you want you can cook it a little longer). Rest for a minute and slice.
  4. To assemble, toss radicchio leaves with the sliced fish, a few tablespoons of the dressing and some of the breadcrumbs. To garnish, sprinkle over remaining breadcrumbs and torn anchovies.
