Grilled Swordfish

Baby Kato


When purchasing swordfish steaks for your grill, buy the freshest, it shouldn't smell and the flesh should be pink not brown. For best results eat it the day you buy it.

Options: For best results, if using lime juice use lime zest, if using lemon juice use lemon zest.

If you have never had BBQ swordfish you are in for a treat. It has a wonderful texture that reminds one of steak.

I hope you will enjoy this tasty recipe.
