Grilled Swordfish with Thai Dipping Sauce

For many people, the seductiveness of Thai cooking lies in the careful balancing of basic flavors — sweet, sour, savory, and spicy. This recipe demonstrates these principles without getting into a laundry list of ingredients. The simple dipping sauce in this recipe would go equally well with grilled chicken, steak, or shrimp.

Ingredients

  • One 3/4-pound 1-inch-thick swordfish steak
  • 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 red jalapeño, seeded and chopped finely
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Preheat a gas grill or cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, combine the honey, cilantro, jalapeño, fish sauce, and citrus juices in a bowl and whisk to combine.

Coat the steak with the oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes, then turn 90 degrees and cook for 2 more minutes. Flip the steak and repeat.

Serve the steak with the dipping sauce on the side, or if you like, drizzled lightly over the top.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
