I absolutely LOVE swordfish but I never tried to marinate it. This recipe got my attention and I'm glad it did! The marinade is simple to make and the flavors are a perfect compliment to the fish. I did not make any changes to the recipe .... I will definitely be making this again! Five stars for sure!

I was skeptical because of the simplicity of the recipe. This lite marinade enhances the flavor of the swordfish w/o changing or clouding the flavor. Using "fresh - never frozen" swordfish is essential. Used food processor to chop ingredients, marinaded for 2 hours,

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!

We love swordfish too - I was just looking for something different than our usual recipe and found this - absolutely perfect. I also have a herb garden and was happy to be able to use some of my fresh rosemary. Thank you!

I made this recipe with tuna steaks and the flavor was great! Once the store carries swordfish again, I'll try it with that. Great, easy recipe, thanks!
