For the chimichurri

300ml extra-virgin olive oil
90ml red wine vinegar
1 large orange, zested
1 large lemon, zested
120ml orange juice
60ml lemon juice
35g minced garlic
20g minced shallots
60g chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
30g chopped fresh basil leaves
30g chopped coriander leaves
1) To prepare the chimichurri, place all the ingredients in a food processor and process for 1 to 2 mins until the ingredients are well combined. Can be used immediately, but for best results refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 2 hrs before serving, to allow to come to room temperature.

2) Preheat your griddle pan (or outdoor griddle) over medium-high heat. Brush each sweet potato slice generously with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper. Griddle for 3 to 4 mins per side, or until tender when poked with a knife (you want some nice char marks on the potatoes.) You may need to griddle in 2 batches. Place on a baking sheet, wrap with foil and place in a preheated to 95C oven.

3) Next, in a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add 2 tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil. When hot add the yellow peppers and season generously with salt and pepper. Saute until caramelised, about 5 to 6 mins. Add the garlic and saute for an additional 2 mins. Turn the heat off, toss in the toasted pine nuts, basil and oregano and add a pinch more salt and pepper. Stir to combine and keep warm on the stovetop.

4) For the swordfish, again heat your griddle pan (or outdoor griddle) over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of the swordfish generously with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper. Griddle until just cooked through, but still moist, about 3 to 4 mins per side (being careful not to overcook the fish.)

5) To plate, first put 1/4 of the sweet potato slices onto each of 4 warmed plates. Top potatoes with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a tiny pinch of salt. Next, top the sweet potatoes, with 1/4 of the pepper mixture. Then place the swordfish atop that, and spoon a generous amount of the chimichurri over the middle of the fish.

6) To garnish, top the chimichurri with a tiny sprinkling of orange zest, then just a few very thinly sliced pieces of jalapeno, and a twisted orange slice. Serve with warmed sourdough baguette slices and the additional chimichurri on the side. Enjoy!!
