A light, and delicious quick meal to make. A light, and delicious quick meal to make.
Number of Servings: 2


    Two pre-frozen raw swordfish steaks (I used Aldi's because they were only $5.00 for two generous sized steaks)

    Fresh Ground Black Pepper
    Fresh Sea Salt (grinder)
    Lemon Juice (from the bottle or fresh)
    Fresh Cilantro
    Dijon Mustard (any brand will do) can omit if you don't like it
    Extra Light Olive Oil, or any kind of light oil you have on hand


In a plastic bag, or in a baking dish, place the thawed swordfish steaks.
In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients except for the dijon mustard.
Place just a small amount (1 tsp) of the Dijon mustard on the top of each steak.
After mixing other ingredients, pour over the steaks, making sure to lift the steaks to coat the bottom. By putting the steaks in the bag, you can get a better marination, but the baking dish will work just as well.
Wait about an hour for the marinade to set in.
Preheat the oven to around 300 degrees.
Place the fish in the oven, and cook 25-35 minutes, until fish is tender and flaky by fork.

Serve with rice and steamed vegetables, or a light salad with a vinaigrette.

Your house will smell delightful while this is baking!!

***you can also add fresh or powdered garlic to this recipe for a little more flavor***

    This had a great flavor! The mustard cut the zest/tangyness of the lemon a bit and complimented it surprisingly well! thanks! one suggestion would be to add amounts to the recipe - I just used enough to cover my swordfish and went by taste! - 1/12/10

    The seasoning amounts still are not posted, but it's not to hard to estimate what would be appropriate from comparable recipes. - 10/25/11
