Cuisine: Mediterranean

Prep time: 2 hours
Cook time: 8 mins
Total time: 2 hours 8 mins
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 3 oranges
  • 1 large bay leaf, crumbled
  • 1 or 2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Four 6-ounce swordfish steaks, ¾ inch thick
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. In a ceramic or glass baking pan, swish the olive oil, orange juice, bay leaf, and garlic until mixed. Place the swordfish steaks in the marinade and coat with the thyme and salt and pepper and leave for 2 hours, turning after the first hour.
  2. Prepare a hot charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill on high for 20 minutes.
  3. Grill the swordfish on the hottest part of the grill, directly over the coals or burner and grill until almost springy to the touch, 6 to 8 minutes in all, basting with the leftover marinade and turning carefully only once. Remove from the grill and serve.
