  • ¼ cup of olive oil I used Colavita's Garlic Olive Oil as a wonderful addition
  • Juice of half a lemon or 2 tablespoon of lemon juice.
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 2 small swordfish steaks (or 1 large)


  • Place all marinade ingredients in a glass dish or zip lock bag and mix to combine.
  • Rinse the swordfish in cold water and pat dry. Leave the skin on to hold it together while cooking.
  • Place the fish the marinade and be sure it is coated well.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes. (longer is fine too)
  • If you are grilling, preheat your grill until approx. 400-450 degrees. Rub the grill grates with olive oil on a paper towel to keep the fish from sticking. (use tongs to hold the paper towels and not burn your hand)
  • If you are pan searing, heat a pan on medium high heat. The oil from the marinade will be enough to keep it from sticking.
  • Cook for about 7 minutes on the first side. Then flip and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes until the fish is just cooked through and white.
  • Remove from heat and let it rest 5-10 minutes minutes.
  • ENJOY!!
