The other day I bought two nice thick swordfish steaks at the grocery store and was looking for a good way to prepare them. I decided on this recipe as it seemed quick and easy and it was. The marinade was delicious however, I could have gone a bit more spicy but I like lots of spice. 'Twas a big hit and I will certainly make it again. The marinade complimented but did not overpower the taste of the swordfish. Thanks for posting!

Great! The amounts I used were approximate (like 2 1/2 inches ginger root and 1 T red chilli sauce), so it was spicy, but complimented the firm swordfish really well. I used a normal onion and pan fried it with the marinade, would certainly do it again.

Fabulous swordfish recipe! The lemon flavour dominates but doesn't overpower the ginger or garlic. I would have liked a bit more chili, but everyone else liked it as written. The swordfish is essential for this recipe. It was meaty and juicy. Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 4.
