Grilled Lemon Ginger Swordfish


For the Swordfish

  • Fresh swordfish steaks
  • Olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper

For the Lemon Ginger Glaze

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Ginger, chopped
  • Honey

For the Chimichurri (optional)

  • Cilantro
  • Garlic, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Oregano
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare a grill to high heat.
  2. Pat the swordfish dry with a paper towel and season lightly with the salt and pepper. Drizzle the fish with a little oil. Brush some oil on the grill racks so the fish doesn’t stick.
  3. Lay the fish on the hot grill racks and allow to cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Turn gently with a thin spatula so that the fish doesn’t tear and grill the other side for another 2 or 3 minutes or until the filets feel firm when pressed. Remember, it takes about 7 minutes to cook a 1-inch thick piece of fish and these filets are closer to 1/2-inch.
  4. Combine all ingredients for the lemon ginger glaze in a small bowl.
  5. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients for the chimichurri.
  6. When the fish is cooked through, transfer to serving plates and the brush the glaze over the top.
  7. Drizzle the chimichurri over the fish or serve on the side, if desired.
  8. Pair with an Asian noodle salad or side of your choice.

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
