Toss veg with olive oil salt and pepper and lay them out on a baking pan (using parchment paper with help then from sticking) bake for 10 minutes flip them over and bake for 5 more minutes. They should be cooked through and turning golden on the edges.

Heat oil in heavy large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle swordfish with salt & pepper.  Add swordfish to skillet. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn swordfish over. Add the herbed butter to the  top of each fish steak add the shallots and transfer to the preheated oven Roast until just cooked through, about 10 minutes longer.
