resealable plastic bag
2 tbsp Dijon mustard, for the marinade 30 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 tbsp marjoram, fresh, chopped 7 g
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt 2 g
1/4 tsp ground pepper 1 g
2 swordfish steaks, ou shark 300 g
3 1/2 potatoes 700 g
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 mL
1 tbsp lemon 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp Dijon mustard, for the salad 16 g
1 bunch arugula 150 g
1 tbsp chives, fresh, chopped 3 g
4 radishes, thinly sliced 60 g


  1. Put the 6 first ingredients (mustard, olive oil, marjoram, garlic, salt, and pepper) in a plastic bag and mix well. Add the swordfish steaks, turning them to coat well, then close the bag tightly. Chill in a refrigerator at least 1 hour or overnight, turning the bag occasionally.
  2. Peel the potatoes, then cut them in half lengthwise and boil them in a pot of salted water about 15 min, until tender. Drain, then cut each piece in half to obtain quarters and set them aside in a bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper, using a fork or whisk until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Pour the vinaigrette over the warm potatoes and toss well then set aside.
  4. Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and sauté the swordfish steaks. Cook about 3 min per side for a 1,5 cm thick steak. When ready, the steaks will be opaque throughout and slightly brown on the surface (avoid overcooking as it dries the fish out and makes it tough!)
  5. Meanwhile, wash the arugula well, then drain and place the leaves on a serving plate or in a bowl. Arrange the vinaigrette-seasoned potatoes over the arugula, sprinkle with chopped chives and sliced radishes. Serve with the swordfish steaks.
