Chef Chuck's Grilled Swordfish

Pesce Spada alla Siciliana

Today's catch of the day, was swordfish, fresh from the fish market. I first marinated the swordfish, and then grilled it. So simple yet so delightful for a summer dish, served with garden picked tomatoes and a wedge of lemon.  Swordfish is quite popular in Sicily, and this is one of the many ways to prepare this fish.  

Grilled Swordfish
1 swordfish steak
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tablespoon capers
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
salt and pepper to taste
lemon wedges

Wash and pat dry fish salt and pepper both sides.  Combine all ingredients and marinate the fish for at least 30 minutes.  Remove and place on oiled hot grill, cook for 3 minutes on each side.  Spoon marinade over fish and serve.  Serves 2


  1. Chuck - nice clean flavors and a simple grilling makes for a delicious way to enjoy swordfish.

  2. I've never had swordfish. Looks pretty tasty, gotta love the grill marks... makes for extra delicousness!

  3. Hi Ash, You must try this one day! The swordfish has a meaty flavor, the texture also is a little different then your standard fish. Thank You and enjoy :)
