"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Heat oil in a large stockpot

about 5 minutes.

Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, bay leaves, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to
taste.

Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat and simmer until
the mixture has thickened to the consistency of tomato sauce,
15-20 minutes.

the heat and simmer until the flavors meld, about 10 minutes.

Stir in the swordfish cubes, capers, pine nuts and olives and bring back
to a simmer over medium heat.

Simmer for 7 minutes, stirring a few times.

Remove the pot from the heat, cover and let stand until the fish
is just cooked through, 2-3 minutes.

Discard the bay leaves and serve.
