Swordfish With Fresh Tomato Salsa

This evening was my first time playing around with Swordfish! I’ve always wanted to try this meaty, mild tasting fish. This recipe only took about 25 minutes to make, and I can already tell it’s going to be a summertime favourite on the BBQ.

After doing some research online, the recipe that stood out to me the most (and that I had all the ingredients for), is actually Kris Jenner’s! I made a few small changes and got to work. The result was delicious: a perfect combination of sweetness and acidity.

Recipe for Swordfish With Fresh Tomato Salsa:


  • 2 Swordfish Steaks
  • 2 Limes (Juiced)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Coarse Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sweet Soy Sauce
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, Smashed
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 1 Handful of Fresh Chopped Dill
  • Freshly Ground Peppercorn
  • Kosher Salt

Fresh Salsa:

  • 2 Tomatoes (Diced)
  • 1 Lime (Juiced)
  • 1/2 Jalapeno (Diced)
  • Freshly Ground Peppercorn
  • Kosher Salt
  • A Handful of Fresh Cilantro


1: Combine all of the marinade ingredients together in a ziplock bag and add your swordfish steaks. Allow resting in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

2: Chop up tomato, onion, jalapeno, salt, and cilantro and place in a bowl. Stir in fresh lime juice. Put your fresh salsa in the fridge.

3: After your marinade has had a chance to set, remove your swordfish from the fridge and let it come to room temperature on the countertop (about half an hour). Preheat your oven to 400 Degrees.

4: Preheat a pan over medium-high heat on the stove. Carefully remove your swordfish from the marinade, and remove excess liquid. Place your swordfish into the frying pan, and sear for about 3 minutes per side.

5: Place your swordfish directly into the preheated oven and cook for an extra 5 minutes.
