Preparation

Dressing: In a bowl, whisk vinegar, mustard, anchovy paste, shallot, garlic, thyme and basil together. Season and whisk in oil until dressing emulsifies.

Reserve 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) of dressing in a small bowl.

Preheat barbecue to medium-high.

Brush both sides of swordfish steaks and sliced sweet potatoes with reserved dressing. Grill fish 5 - 7 minutes, turning them over once.

For tender fish, cook just until pink. Longer cooking will make fish dry.

Remove from heat, cool slightly and cut into cubes. Set aside.

Grill sliced sweet potatoes until tender.

In 4 plates, top a bed of lettuce leaves with cubed fish and sliced sweet potatoes.

Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with chives and parsley.
