Ingredients

  • One 3/4-pound swordfish steak, skinned and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons oregano, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon or orange
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the swordfish, olive oil, herbs, and zest. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. Soak 3 bamboo skewers in water.

Preheat a grill or cast-iron grill pan on medium heat until smoking hot, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, carefully thread the swordfish onto the skewers and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place the swordfish on the grill and cook until opaque, about 2 minutes on each side (8 minutes total). Remove from the heat and serve with sides of your choice.

Swordfish Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.

Swordfish Cooking Tip

Looking for a quick mid-week dinner? Seafood is a safe bet. It's quick to cook and simple recipes can get dinner on the table in 20 minutes.

Swordfish Wine Pairing

Most white wines (especially albariño) and rosé with most fish dishes. Muscadet, sancerre, or New Zealand sauvignon blanc with cold fish dishes; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, or pinot blanc with grilled or roasted fish; sauvignon blanc or gewürztraminer with baked fish; grüner veltliner with fish pâté; vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with light fish dishes; fino or manzanilla with small fried fish; junmai, junmai-ginjo, or junmai-daiginjo with teriyaki fish.
