Italian Swordfish Steaks

Sat night at my parents house I cooked dinner and made a few different things.  Its always nice to cook at my moms because I never have to clean up.

We had agreed on steak and something to do with zucchini.  over at Jenna's blog had I seen a recipe for cheesy zucchini pizza and decided it was a must-make for dinner.  I realized we didn't have any pizza dough but had some yeast, so I made my own pizza dough, which was super easy. (Recipe to follow).

while looking trough my moms freezer also found two swordfish steaks and decided to make those.

I actually recently told myself to start eating fish, and this was perfect. I jumped online and googled swordfish recipes, but most had you grilling, which I didn't want to do.  i came across a recipe for Italian swordfish steaks and knew most of hose ingredients could be  found... winner!

First, I soaked some raisins in warm water

and while those were soaking I chopped up about 4 tomatoes and placed them in a bowl. 

I also added sunflower seeds (we didn't have pine nuts... awww, nuts!) and capers.

 In a pan I added some olive oil, and sauteed the garlic and onion.  When that was finished sauteing, I added the rest of the mixture into the pot, covered, and cooked on low for 15 minutes.

When the sauce was finished I spread some olive oil on the bottom of a glass pan, placed the two steaks, and spooned the sauce on the top.

Then I baked the fish on 400 for about 20 minutes.

It was so delish, I will definitely be making the topping again and seeing what else I can put it on!
