Equipment

  • Grill, (indoor or outdoor), or George Forman Grill

Ingredients

  • 1 pound swordfish steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • ¼ cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon mint leaves, finely chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Heat whatever grill you are using to a high heat.
  • Season both sides of the swordfish steak with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, melted butter, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, basil, and mint to make the sauce.
  • Brush the swordfish steaks with about a tablespoon of the sauce on each side.
  • For a top and bottom grill, place the prepared swordfish steaks on the grill, close it, and cook for about 6 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your swordfish steaks. For a bottom grill only, cook them for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • Spoon the reserved warm sauce over the top just before serving. Serve with a lemon wedge if you'd like.

EXTRA TIP:

You don't want to grill swordfish for too long, or it will become dry.  If you'd like to test with an internal temperature, it should read at least 145°, and can go a little higher if you want it less moist.
