Swordfish was on sale this week, so we picked up 2 steaks (enough for 4 people - they're HUGE!) and I, naturally, consulted *Zaar for a quick marinade/rub recipe specifically for swordfish. I decided to use fresh ginger and fresh garlic cloves (I had to get rid of them). I only had 1 tbsp left of fresh ginger, so I also added 1/8 tsp ginger powder (2 tbsp fresh = 1/4 tsp ground). I used two fresh cloves garlic (1 clove = 1/8 tsp powder). I minced them and whizzed all ingredients (using fresh cracked black pepper and splenda) in my mini cuisinart. We GRILLED ours (no need for oil - so we omitted) with lemon slices on top. They tasted ginger-y, but not overpowering. Very subtle. Personally, I enjoy BOLD flavors, so I'd suggest doubling (or even tripling) the recipe and rubbing both sides thoroughly. We served this simply with grilled veggies and corn. For my own piece, I liberally squeezed lemon and cracked black pepper all over the top to create a crust (hey, I said I like BOLD flavors ;) All in all, it was good and worth using up m leftover fresh ingredients.

I really loved this rub! It was smoky, spicy and sweet.

I made this some weeks ago and it was yummmmmy. I used all of the spice mixture and with all the same proportions with two steaks instead of the recommended four, and the flavor was just right for our taste buds.

not bad at all. the flavors are subtle enough to not overpower the richness of the fish. could have used a little more kick i thought, but thats just my own personal preference. thumbs up :)
