Swordfish with capers

I found this recipe on Saveur and had to post it here.
Its very typical of the way we make swordfish in malta.
Here is the recipe:

4 swordfish steaks (about 6 oz. each 
   and 3/8" thick), skin removed

Kosher salt and freshly ground black 
   pepper, to taste

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 cups whole peeled canned tomatoes, 
   drained and minced

1/2 cup large green olives, such as 
   cerignola, pitted and roughly 

3 tbsp. salt-packed capers, soaked 
   and drained

1/4 tsp. crushed red chile flakes
2 tbsp. roughly chopped flat-leaf 

1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1. Season swordfish with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a 12" skillet over high heat. Working in two batches, add swordfish and cook, flipping once, until golden brown and medium rare, about 3 minutes. Transfer swordfish to a plate, leaving oil in skillet.

2. Reduce heat to medium; add garlic and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, olives, capers, and chile flakes and cook, stirring, until tomatoes soften and release some of their juices, about 5 minutes. Return swordfish steaks to skillet, nestling them in the sauce, and add parsley and lemon juice; cook until fish is cooked through. To serve, transfer swordfish to a platter and spoon sauce over top.
