Buying the best swordfish
Swordfish has really compact flesh that stands up to aggressive cooking on a grill. When you’re buying it, look out for fish with a clean, white flesh free from any bloody streaks and remove any fat and marks from the bottom of the fish.
The magic of marinating
Leaving the fish in a marinade helps to give it a good flavour and tenderises it. Adding the acidic lime juice helps the other seasonings to penetrate the flesh, too.
How to grill your swordfish
Gordon uses a purpose-built griddle unit for grilling fish, but that said, a griddle pan or even barbecue grill will work just as well. If you want a chic criss-cross pattern on the steaks then give them a quarter turn after the first 30 secs of grilling each side.
