How to Cook Swordfish on the Grill

Marinated Grilled Swordfish

  • Author: Bobby


  • 4 Swordfish steaks (46 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 11/2 tablespoons honey
  • 11/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Place the olive oil, honey, soy sauce, lemon zest, parsley, salt, and pepper in a bowl or resealable bag. Whisk thoroughly.
  2. Reserve one tablespoon of the marinade for later use. Add the garlic to the marinade and stir.
  3. Add the swordfish to the marinade.
  4. Cover the bowl or seal the bag, marinate in the refrigerator for up to 30 minutes or even ad long as 8hours.
  5. Remove the swordfish from the marinade; ensure to remove excess bits of garlic or herbs because they could burn on the grill.
  6. Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush the grate with oil before adding the fish to avoid sticking to the pan. Cook the fish for 5-6 minutes on each side till swordfish becomes opaque.
  7. Brush the reserved marinade over the fish and then serve.  You can serve with lemon wedges if you wish.
