Pan Seared Swordfish w/ Caramelized Lemons & Balsamic Glazed Broccoli Rabe

4 8 oz. Swordfish Steaks
2 Lemons, Halved & Seeds Removed
2 Bunches Broccoli Rabe
4 Tbsp Olive Oil
4 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tsp, Garlic Chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste

Blanch the broccoli rabe in boiling slated water for 60-90 seconds. Remove and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking. Drain and dry well and set aside until ready to serve. Over medium high heat in a non stick pan sear the swordfish and for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Flip the swordfish and add the lemon halves (flesh side down) to the pan and caramelize both for another 3-4 minutes. While searing the swordfish, in another pan, heat the olive oil and garlic over medium heat. Once light golden brown add the blanched broccoli rabe and cook for 4-5 minutes until al dente. Add the balsamic vinegar and reduce until the vinegar forms a glaze over the broccoli rabe.

Oven Roasted Peaches w/ Thyme-Vanilla Gelato

2 Peaches, cut into eights
1 Orange, juiced and zested
1 oz. White wine
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 pinch Salt
1 Cup, Low Fat Vanilla Gelato
2 Tbsp Fresh Thyme, Chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the peaches with the white wine, orange juice, zest, sugar and one tablespoon of the chopped thyme. Place on a non-stick baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes until the peaches are soft and a syrup has formed. While the peaches are in the oven remove the gelato from the freezer. Once semi-soft combine with the other tablespoon of thyme, and place the gelato back in the freezer until ready. Serve the warm peaches with the thyme gelato and garnish with the orange-white wine syrup.
