Mediterranean Swordfish



Introduction

Another protein rich option for the summer grilling season. Another protein rich option for the summer grilling season.

Ingredients

    1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    2 Tbsp. capers
    4 1/2-inch thick swordfish steaks, about 4 ounces each
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 lemon cut into quarters

Directions

1. Using a blender or food processor, blend oil with garlic, lemon juice and capers. Transfer to a non-metal container. Add fish and marinate 20 to 30 minutes, turning fish once in the process.

2. Meanwhile, prepare the grill or preheat the broiler. Remove fish from marinade and pat dry with paper towelling. Season with salt and pepper. (If using an indoor grill, spray fish lightly with olive oil or canola oil spray.)

3. Grill the fish about 4 to 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness of fish, or until fish is opaque in the center. (Fish usually takes about 10 minutes per inch of thickness to cook through.) Donít overcook or fish will be dry.

4. Serve with wedges of fresh lemon, either hot or at room temperature.

Makes 4 servings (4 oz uncooked).

    You can basicly get the same result & flavor by using a 1/3 of a cup fat free Italian dressing,2 crushed gloves of garlic & 2 table spoons of finely minced fresh Italian parsley. Delicious, fast & no blender to wash. - 5/26/09

    This fish contains mercury. Stay away from it. Check to see which fish contain mercury before purchasing. - 5/26/09

    YUMMY!! Cooked it with wild-caught Halibut to cut down on the Mercury danger. Grilled it outdoors instead of indoors in the broiler . . . . TASTY!! I cut down the amount of Capers because they are so pungent that we prefer them as a 'tone' of flavor & not something overpowering. - 5/26/09

    I grill swordfish all the time. I usually spary light olive oil from an atomizer and then use some sinple spices like salt , pepper or some mrs. dash. I also grill it outdoors or inside on a grill pan. It is great either kabob stlye with vegetables or covered with mango salsa...delicious!!! - 8/2/09

    I used Halibut it's really good and a little bit cheaper. I don't worry too much about the mercury because I don't eat that much fish. - 8/2/09

    Although high in protein, swordfish is one of the fish with the highest mercury levels. I would not consider it a healthy choice food. - 5/26/09

    I love grilling fish and am always looking for a good recipe to mix it up with. It seems as though this marinade could be used with different protein as well. Can't wait to try it this spring/summer. - 1/28/08
