"Finding this recipe @ sauceandsensibilitydotcom was like stepping back in time to my teenage yrs & standing w/my Dad on our patio while he grilled swordfish for the family .. our favorite fish that he bought at a local fish market in Tulsa, OK. It was pricey, but we loved it! This swordfish is prepared simply (as is the Azorean way) & then the recipe becomes all about the sauce. According to Susan who posted the recipe, this is especially good for a summer evening spent on your patio (just like my family memory). -- I suggest the sauce be made 1st & then reheated when the swordfish is ready to be plated. Times were estimated by me & extra time allowed for ingredient prep. ENJOY!"
Heat the oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Add the onions & sauté until they wilt just a little. Add the garlic, tomatoes, olives, anchovy & basil. Bring the mixture to a boil, lower the heat & simmer for about 5 min until there is just a little liquid left & the tomatoes have softened. Taste & season w/salt & pepper. Add the butter, remove from the heat & stir until the butter is fully incorporated. *(As suggested, the sauce can be made ahead, but do not add the butter. Add the butter when the sauce is reheated.)*
Rub the Creole seasoning over all surfaces of the swordfish steaks. Grill the steaks on a med-hot grill until nicely firm & med-rare. This should be about 5 min on ea side. (If weather is poor or you prefer to cook indoors, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet & gently saute them over med-heat for 4-5 min per side.)
