Grilled Rosemary Swordfish is juicy, flaky, succulent, and tasty–everything you want in your fish. This very simple recipe combines lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper and parsley–that’s it! But it has great taste. I grilled the swordfish on an indoor grill rather than a gas grill and they still came out fabulous. Grilled Rosemary Swordfish is a very quick and easy recipe for the grill that’s especially helpful during summers when you want to cook outside instead of heating up your house. For those of you who want to change your diet to include more fish, this is a great way to do that. For the record, fish oil is excellent in reducing cholesterol and including a lot of essential fatty acids/oils in your diet will lower triglycerides.
A few weeks ago I had defrosted some swordfish from our freezer and was trying to find a recipe to prepare this. We don’t eat a ton of fish and usually my husband cooks it rather than me. I ended up using this one and added a few other ingredients as I desired. This recipe turned out even better than expected so I will definitely make it again. The combination of parsley, garlic, and rosemary really added a wonderful fragrance and taste to the swordfish.
If you’re looking for a really tasty way to serve swordfish, tuna, salmon, or almost any kind of fish than I recommend that you look at this recipe. It’s quick, easy, economical, and flavorful. It’s also healthy, low calorie, and gluten free. Not only that, but you will probably have all the ingredients on hand so you don’t have to make a run to the store at the last minute. If you’re cooking fish on the grill for company this is a can’t fail recipe!

Here’s what I did.
Measure olive oil into a glass measuring cup.
Add lemon juice.
Add minced garlic from a jar.
Add kosher salt or sea salt, black pepper, rosemary, and fresh torn parsley.
Stir to combine.
Brush grill with oil or spray with olive oil cooking spray. Place swordfish steaks on grill and brush with olive oil mixture.
Grill 5-10 minutes per side until fish flakes with a fork. Gas grills usually cook these in about 5 minutes. My indoor grill took about 10 minutes per side.

GRILLED ROSEMARY SWORDFISH
(Recipe adapted from Taste of Home)
3 swordfish steaks
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp. fresh parsley
1 heaping tsp. minced garlic from a jar
Heat grill. Spray grill with cooking spray or brush with oil to prevent sticking. While grill is heating make marinade. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, salt, pepper, garlic and parsley. Stir. Place swordfish steaks on grill. Spread half of the marinade on top of the swordfish steaks and grill over hot heat 5-10 minutes (5 for a gas grill and 10 for an indoor grill). Cover grill. Turn steaks over and brush with remaining marinade. Cover grill again and grill fish another 5-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. Serves 3.
I doubled up on the parsley for this meal because both the swordfish and the potatoes had lots of it!
This marinade was enough for 3 swordfish steaks but you can easily double the ingredients if you have a larger family.
Grilled Rosemary Swordfish is juicy and succulent!
To test for doneness, use a fork and see if the fish flakes easily. You don’t want to overcook the fish either.
These swordfish steaks were very tender prepared this way. The flavors mingled together quite well.
