  • 4 large tomatoes, cores removed, bottoms scored
  • 1 cup chopped fennel
  • 1 cup chopped shallots
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups fish stock
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Swordfish:
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 8 ounces fresh swordfish, bloodline removed, cut into thirds
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ounces dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Yukon Hash:
  • 1 cup diced and peeled Yukon potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chiffonade Swiss chard
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
Citrus Bottarga Salad:
  • 1 cup mizuna 
  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 1 piece bottarga, shaved (about 5 tablespoons)
  • 1 large Honeybell orange, peeled, pith removed, cut into supremes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

For the tomato butter: Soak the wood chips in water for 30 minutes before using, then drain and transfer to a pan. Place the tomatoes into a perforated pan and set over the wood chips, then top with a lid. Place over medium heat, and smoke the tomatoes for 30 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the fennel, shallots and garlic in a pot and simmer until translucent. Pour in the wine to deglaze, and then stir in the cream, stock and smoked tomatoes. Mash the tomatoes into the sauce using a whisk or the back of a stirring spoon. Simmer over medium heat until the liquid is reduced by two-thirds. Puree until smooth, strain and season with salt and sugar. Reserve for plating.

For the swordfish: Combine the fennel seed, oregano, peppercorns, salt and thyme in a pan and toast over low heat for 30 minutes, shaking the pan every couple of minutes. Transfer to a spice grinder and pulse until it becomes a coarse powder. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the swordfish with the fennel herb mix, and then place seasoned-side down into the pan. Sprinkle the top side with the fennel herb mix. Cook until cooked throughout, about 3 minutes per side, then remove from the pan and let rest. Pour in the wine to deglaze, and then add smoked tomato butter and cook until reduced by half. Stir in the unsalted butter until melted.

For the hash: Boil the potatoes until fork-tender. Drain and let cool. Add the olive oil a skillet, and then saute the potatoes and bell peppers until golden brown. Add the chard and toss for 30 seconds. Stir in the butter and cook until melted and combined, and then season with the salt and black pepper.

For the salad: Mix together the mizuna, olive oil, some of the bottarga, the orange and some salt and black pepper.

Place the salad on top of the fish, and finish the plate with the remaining shaved bottarga.
