  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time:10 Minutes
  • Cook time:10 Minutes
  • Refrigerate:30 Minutes


  • 4 6-ounce fresh swordfish steaks
  • 1/2 cup(s) butter, slightly softened
  • 2 tablespoon(s) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon(s) finely grated lemon peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) cracked black peppercorns, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) chopped fresh herbs, thyme and oregano
  • 1/3 cup(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt


Combine butter, lemon juice, lemon peel and cracked peppercorns in a small mixing bowl; set aside.

Mix the herbs and oil together in a small bowl; press on as much as will stick to the fish. Cover and refrigerate steaks in their herb crusts for at least 1/2 hour and as long as 3 hours.

Preheat a grill or broiler and broiler pan. Right before cooking, oil the grill or broiler pan. Season fish with salt, then lay swordfish steaks on grill or broiler pan. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes each side or until firm and opaque; remove to warm plates.

Top each steak with 1 tablespoon of the lemon butter; serve the remaining lemon butter to add as desired.
