This make-ahead recipe offers bold flavor thanks to an 11-ingredient marinade. For best results, let the swordfish steaks marinate for the full two hours before grilling.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 11 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add swordfish steaks; seal bag, and shake until steaks are well coated. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

Remove steaks from marinade, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil 1 minute.

Step 4

Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Place on grill over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°). Place swordfish steaks on rack; grill, covered, 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting occasionally with marinade. Garnish swordfish steaks with fresh basil sprigs, if desired.

This was a really tasty dish. I usually don't cook swordfish because it tends to dry out. This recipe produced a very moist, juicy and tender steak with a really nice flavor - and it was very quick to prepare for a weeknight dinner. I had to substitute rosemary for the herbs since I didn't have them in the house, and it was still good. I'm sure it's delicious as written with thyme and basil.

I thought this was an excellent recipe and marinade. My swordfish fillets turned out very tender and flavorful. My husband is not a huge fish fan but he enjoyed it as much as he can enjoy fish. Swordfish is full flavored so I will try this marinade again on a more mild fish. I followed the recipe exactly and highly recommend it for any firm fish fillets.

Great recipe. Very easy to make, full of flavor and the swordfish was so moist (I used fresh swordfish, pricey but worth it). This could easily be served to company for an impressive entree and at only 165 calories, it's healthy too!! I used fresh orange and lemon juice and added the zest of each as well as a teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning. Can't wait to try this marinade with salmon. Yum
