Spices used are a play on Montreal Steak Seasoning. Feel free to use the real seasoning as well.

1.5 pounds of swordfish (any white fish, swordfish holds up best on the grille)

1.5 teaspoons of garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon of dill weed

1/2 teaspoon coriander

1/2 tablespoon olive oil

Other Ingredients

  • 4 dashes of salt
  • Ground black pepper- to taste (use a good amount)
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (2-3 dashes)


Step 1:

Add the olive oil to your fish. Season your fish with the above seasoning. Again, swordfish is best for the grille because it is a tougher meat, but use any white fish.

Step 2:

Bring your grille to medium- high heat (2/3 the max heat).

Step 3:

Reduce the grille to medium heat and add your fish and cover the grille. At about 5 minutes, flip the fish and then let it cook on that side for another 5 minutes.

Step 4:

When the swordfish is ready,  pull it off the grille. 

Optional: squeeze half a lemon worth of lemon juice onto the fish.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Vegetables pair very well and can be grilled at the same time as the fish. Some vegetables to consider at potatoes, bell pepper, onion, summer squash, and zucchini.
  • Feel free to mess with the amounts of the herbs and spices to get a flavor you enjoy best!
  • For extra spice add more red pepper flakes or cayenne to the swordfish.
