  • 2
    2 Tablespoons Olive oil
    6 Swordfish fillets (about 6-oz each)
    Kosher salt
    1 Yellow onion (minced)
    2 Garlic cloves (minced)
    1 Fennel bulb (cut into medium dice)
    1 Serrano chili (minced)
    1 Carrot (cut into medium dice)
    1/2 Lb Smoked chorizo (cut into 1/4-inch pieces)
    1/2 Cup Sherry
    1 Pinch Saffron

    1 12-ounce can crushed whole peeled tomatoes (with their juice)
    1.5 Lb Middleneck clams (about 24), well washed
    2 Tablespoon Chopped kalamata olives
    In a 7- or 8-quart enameled cast-iron Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season the swordfish with salt, add it to the pan, and brown it, about 2 minutes per side. Add the onion, garlic, fennel, chili, and carrot; lower the heat to medium; and cook to sweat the vegetables, about 2 minutes. Add the chorizo and continue to sweat. Pour in the sherry and bring to a simmer, scraping the bottom of the pot. Add the saffron, stock, tomatoes, olives and clams and bring to a simmer.
