Swordfish with Star Anise

prep 5 mins + 5 mins resting time cook 15 mins
  • 180 g (6 oz) long-grain rice
  • 300 ml (½ pint) hot water
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 pinches of chilli powder
  • vegetable oil
  • 4 swordfish steaks
  • salt and pepper

Rinse the rice in water and drain. Place in a heavy-based saucepan, cover with the hot water and add salt, the star anise and the chilli powder. Bring to a simmer, then cover and leave to cook over a gentle heat for around 15 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and leave to rest for 5 minutes without taking off the lid.

Meanwhile, oil the swordfish steaks lightly. Season them, then cook for 3–4 minutes on each side in a nonstick frying pan.

Remove the star anise from the dish of rice. Fluff up the grains with a fork. Serve immediately with the swordfish steaks.
