My husband loves swordfish, and this is his favorite way to have it—moist, tender and perked up with herbs. Tuna is a good substitute for swordfish. Its firm texture stands up to grilling. —Lorie Rice, Liverpool, New York

"Made this for my 92 yr old dad & I today for Father's Day... AWESOME! Used foreman grill & didn't include olive oil and lemon peel because I didn't have stock. Also didn't include salt because we're both watching it. Wonderful recipe & very tasty! Thx! Have filed for future use."

"I prepared this just as written using fresh rosemary from our garden and used on one 10 ounce swordfish steak and it turned out awesome! Best piece of fish I think I have ever grilled."

"I doubled the lemon juice & olive oil just to have a little more marinade to work with. Great recipe with perfect flavor. Thanks for sharing it!"
