Sicilian-Style Swordfish

Swordfish is the perfect fish for people who swear they don't like fish because it always tastes...well, fishy.  Swordfish is a meatier fish that holds up extremely well to robustly flavored sauces.  A combination of Mediterranean ingredients -- olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and capers -- lend their salty, sweet and tangy flavors to a sauce that perfectly compliments the swordfish.
