Grilled Swordfish Steak

July 23, 2015

Grilled Swordfish Steak was new territory for us since we really don’t eat a lot of seafood.  We weren’t sure what to expect before the swordfish went on the grill, but all I can say is WOW!  It was fab.u.lous.  It wasn’t a flaky texture like salmon, it was firm and juicy and mild and so delicious.  If you splurge on swordfish, be sure to give this marinade a try, you’ll love it! 

I bought fresh swordfish steaks from Whole Foods.  They had frozen steaks too, but I opted for fresh when the guy behind the meat counter told me that fresh was really the way to go.  So I can’t compare to frozen, but let me tell you, this was so delicious that we were sad there wasn’t more!

Grilled Swordfish


  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp crushed rosemary (dried)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper to taste (about 1/4 tsp each)
  • 2 swordfish steaks


  1. Combine lemon juice, oil, rosemary, garlic and salt & pepper in a zip top bag.  Add swordfish steaks and let marinate about an hour.
  2. Heat grill to med-high.  Remove steaks from marinade and discard.  Grill swordfish for 4-6 minutes per side, or until just opaque. 
  3. Serve with additional lemon wedges.
