Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 6 swordfish steaks
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons coarse mustard
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate fish for 1 hour (see recipe).
  • Place fish in a large zipper-topped plastic bag. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (lemon juice through salt and pepper); pour mixture over fish then seal bag, turn to coat and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Heat an indoor grill pan over medium heat until hot. Remove swordfish steaks from marinade (discarding marinade and bag); grill for 5 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed baby red potatoes and steamed asparagus.
VEGETARIAN: Instead of fish, use tempeh and adjust marinating and cooking times accordingly.
GLUTEN FREE: Make sure mustard is gluten free.
