Author Notes: We love a good swordfish cookout in the summer. We like to grill it, with a swipe of mayonnaise for moisture, and served with a squirt of lemon juice. It's a simple preparation that works perfectly every time. Sometimes we put it on warmed buns to make a sandwich, but we usually just eat it with some roasted summer vegetables and maybe a cold cous-cous salad.Kelsey Banfield

Serves: 4-6
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min

  • 2 pounds Swordfish
  • 6 teaspoons Mayonnaise
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 1 pinch Kosher salt
  • 1 pinch Fresh cracked pepper
  1. Plan on 6-8oz. of swordfish per person. Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Rinse and pat dry the swordfish. On one side of the steak spread 3 teaspoon of the mayonnaise and sprinkle 1-2 pinches of Kosher salt and 1-2 pinches of freshly cracked black pepper. Repeat this on the other side.
  3. Place the swordfish on the grill and grill it for 7 minutes per side. At the very end you can grill it for an additional 30 seconds per side to create a crosshatch pattern if desired. Remove from heat, divide swordfish amongst plates for serving. Give everyone half a lemon to squeeze over their fish. Feast!
