  • 4 swordfish steaks (about 6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon (zested and juiced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh parsley (chopped, for garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


  • Preheat Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 400°F or 200°C).
  • Prepare the Marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper.
  • Marinate the Swordfish: Place the swordfish steaks in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the steaks, making sure they are evenly coated. Let them marinate for 15-20 minutes.
  • Grill the Swordfish: Place the marinated swordfish steaks on the preheated grill. Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Avoid overcooking.
  • Serve: Remove the swordfish from the grill and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
