Involtini di pesce spada

  • 200g of fine breadcrumbs
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and grated
  • 2 tbsp of parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of capers, minced
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • fine sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 500g of swordfish, thinly sliced
  • 100ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 70g of smoked Provolone cheese, cubed


Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with parchment and set aside
In a medium skillet set over a low heat, toast the breadcrumbs until golden and crisp, stirring often to avoid burning them
Transfer to a bowl and add the garlic, parsley, capers, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir to combine
Dip the swordfish slices in olive oil. Dredge them in the breadcrumbs on both sides, then place a cube of cheese at their centre and roll them up. Pierce them with skewers to keep them rolled up tight
Bake the swordfish rolls for 20 minutes, until the breading is deeply golden and the cheese is oozing
