This was good but since swordfish is a real special occasion type of food for me, I probably will try a different recipe the next time I have swordfish. I sauteed the onions in a little bit of olive oil to soften them before adding them to the barbeque sauce. I also added a few tablespoons of light brown sugar to the sauce because I like a sweeter more than a tangy barbeque sauce.
- 2 lbs swordfish fillets
- 1 cup catsup
- 1⁄3 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 cup onion, Chopped
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1 small bay leaf
