  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 8 Minutes


  • 2 swordfish steaks, at least 1 in (2.5 cm) thick, about 1½ lb (700 g) total weight
  • 1 tbsp snipped herbs, such as parsley, oregano, or mint, to finish
For the Salmoriglio Sauce
How to Make It
  1. For the sauce, place the lemon zest and juice, parsley, garlic, oregano, and chile powder in a bowl, mix well, and season. Whisk in the oil and 2 tablespoons of cold water and the oil. Brush the steaks with half the sauce and let marinate for 5 minutes.
  2. Preheat the broiler to high, or preheat a griddle pan. Broil or grill the steaks for 3–4 minutes only on each side, or until just cooked through but still moist in the center, since swordfish tends to get dry quickly.
  3. To serve, cut each steak in half and spoon over the remaining sauce. Season with a little extra pepper, scatter with the snipped herbs, and serve immediately.
