Swordfish with honey and cherry tomatoes is a second course that will win you over. It is a peculiar recipe characterized by an unusual and delicious combination: honey, with a sweet and fruity scent that goes perfectly with the acidity of the tomato and the delicate meat of the swordfish.

The slices of swordfish, just seared in a pan, are cooked in the oven with a little oil and then served covered with a diced of flavored tomatoes. A tasty dish, therefore, but healthy and light.
