Cooking spray
4 (6-ounce) swordfish steaks (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
Lemon wedges (optional)


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Combine Basic Marinara and rind in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve with fish and lemon wedges, if desired.
