I made this for dinner last night and I have been trying to decide how best to review it. First, I used Halibut as Sword fish simply isn't available to me. I don't believe that had any effect on the final taste though. I followed the recipe as written and it worked well, the marinade flavored the fish well in 3 hrs. I broiled it for about 7 mins per side and it was nicely cooked. However , I have discovered that I don't really care for vinegar and spices on fish. For me it was the vinegar that sent it off and I think it would be quite good by using the the dry seasonings as a rub without the sugar. This was purely a personal taste thing and not a faulty recipe, others may well adore it. Loved the grilled tomatoes
