  1. Thanks Tebo!! This was excellent. I used cooking sherry instead of rice wine because that is what I had on hand. I think next time I will try it with the rice wine just for comparison. Very easy and my family really enjoyed this. The wonderful smell had the neighbors coming over to check it out.
  2. Tebo, this was excellent! I had to leave out the sherry and ginger because I didn't have it on hand, but I cannot imagine this getting any better. We cooked on the grill. Thanks for posting this one!
  3. Tebo ~ this was really great :O) The flavors were excellent ~ that it was going to have t much soy sauce taste but it was nice & mild Didn`t have the sesame oil so I just used the toasted sesame seeds! I saved the marinate sauce for my chicken breast that I will be having in a few days! My BF is the big time swordfish lover & if he could he would give U another 5 stars ! I glad I found you recipe,its a keeper! ~ POKER~
  4. I've made this twice now and it's fantastic! Don't be afraid to marinate this overnight. I let it sit for at least 24 hours in the fridge. Thanks for posting a keeper!
  5. This was great!While the swordfish was cooking, I used the marinade to "saute" some mixed veges that I had on hand. The aromas were enough to make you hungry. I'll make this one again!


  1. Super easy, fast, and delicious. My boyfriend brought home swordfish from the grocery store, and I was a little unsure because I had only cooked with it once before. I'm a beginner cook, so I need things to be simple, and even though the marinade has several ingredients, it's mostly stuff I keep on hand anyway. I had to substitute powdered ginger for fresh/grated, and I threw in some yellow onions instead of scallions. I also used a broiler because I don't have a grill, and it turned out great. Oh, and my boyfriend gave it the thumbs up! I think I'll be making this on a regular basis from now on.
  2. This is an excellent way to prepare swordfish. It was raining on the east coast of Florida last night so I opted for the broiler. I also made a few substitutions.Sweet white wine instead of sherry and onion powder instead of the scallions.I also halved the sugar.Thanks for sharing!
