Simple Marinated Swordfish

About This Recipe:

I was thrilled when I saw that Trader Joe’s started carrying fresh swordfish steaks, and I knew that I wanted to throw them on the grill. I absolutely love swordfish because of it’s thick, meaty texture, and how “non fishy” it is. I think swordfish doesn’t need much more than a simple lemon-y marinade, and I like to marinate this overnight for optimal flavor. Of course if you do not have a grill, you could just cook this on the stovetop or even bake it in the oven. I served this with a simple Israeli couscous salad- with cucumbers, tomatoes, endive, and olive oil & lemon dressing.
