Broiled swordfish
Jason Loucas/Photodisc
These swordfish steaks are seasoned with salt, pepper, paprika, butter, then broiled.

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 8 minutes


  • 2 pounds swordfish steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • chopped fresh parsley, if desired
  • lemon wedges


Sprinkle swordfish steaks with salt, pepper, and paprika and gently rub into the fish. Preheat a greased broiler rack. Place swordfish steaks on the greased broiler rack and place under broiler, about 2 to 3 inches from heat source. Brush swordfish steaks with melted butter; broil for about 3 minutes. Turn swordfish steaks, brush with more melted butter, and broil for 4 to 5 minutes longer. Fish should be lightly browned and will flake easily with a fork. Sprinkle swordfish steaks lightly with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, and serve with lemon wedges.

Broiled Swordfish, Member bardougma

This recipe was not only delicious (I used one large swordfish steak), but it was simple. It could be made in ten or fifteen minutes because it has no fussy prep. I did cook it about three minutes longer. I would recommend it to anyone!! Dinner in a hurry for company? You couldn't do better!!
