  • Summary

    Grilling fish can be a bit tricky, but swordfish, with its firm, steak-like texture stands up well to this method of cooking. A little lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper is all that's needed to prepare the fish for the grill, and a simple compound butter flavored with lemon zest and basil makes the perfect complement. Serve with sautéed spinach and a salad for a light, warm-weather meal.

    Ingredients

    • 2 swordfish steaks, 1-inch thick (about 2 lbs)
    • Juice of 1/2 lemon
    • Extra virgin olive oil
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • Zest of 1 lemon
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, very finely chopped (about 1/2 clove)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
