Recipe by MA HIKER

My mother always marinated swordfish with Italian dressing and we always loved it! I do the same, but now I grill it rather than broil (as my mom did). Delicious and easy - but only a sometimes treat as swordfish is quite expensive & endangered. This also works nicely for kabobs! And this is a good way to marinate chicken breasts for the grill too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs swordfish steaks (sliced thick)
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian dressing (any variety)


  1. Put fish and empty entire bottle of dressing into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 - 4 hours (can do overnight).
  2. Fire up the grill and let preheat.
  3. Turn grill temperature down to medium-low.
  4. Remove fish from marinade. Place on grill.
  5. Grill until done, flip over halfway through (about 20-30 minutes, I just watch it carefully - cooking time depends upon the thickness of the steaks).
  6. Serve & enjoy!
  7. Preparation time includes marinating time.
