Simple Grilled Swordfish is a great lean filet that’s easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand. Use lemon or lime juice for a change.

Swordfish is a firm, meaty fish with a mild flavor that’s perfect for marinating and then quickly grilling. Some call it a sea steak, and for good reason. Swordfish are usually flash frozen and shipped to grocery stores. You can buy swordfish pre-thawed at the fish counter, or buy frozen and make your own at home.

Do I have to use swordfish? What other types of fish can I use?

This recipe is designed for firm, lean, meaty fish like swordfish. You can also use this recipe for tuna steak or thresher shark.

What’s the best way to thaw fish?

The safest way to thaw fish is to put it in the refrigerator and let it thaw overnight. If you need to thaw fish faster, place it in a Ziploc bag. If it’s already sealed in a separate plastic bag, there’s no need to put it in another bag. Place the plastic-wrapped fish in a mixing bowl and fill the bowl with cold water. Place the bowl in the refrigerator. Your fish should defrost within 1-2 hours, and may take less time if it is a thin fillet. After thawing, the fish should be used immediately.
