Fishing for swordfish is exciting, and you can use this recipe for any white meat fish.


  • 3/4-cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-1/2-teaspoons dried minced onion

  • 3/4-teaspoon dillweed
  • 1/4-teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4-teaspoon pepper
  • 4 swordfish steaks, 1-inch thick


In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; let stand for 30 minutes. Spread 1 tablespoon of herbed butter over each fish steak. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil, and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill fish, butter-side down, covered, over medium heat or broil, buttered side up, 4 inches from the heat for 5-1/2 minutes. Spread 1 tablespoon herbed butter over each fish steak; turn and spread with remaining butter. Grill or broil 5-6 minutes longer, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
