Grilled Swordfish

I thought I hated swordfish. The one time I ate it in a restaurant, it was dry and tasteless.

The guys at my local fish store finally talked me into making it for myself and I am so glad they did.

I like to toss everything into a zip-top bag but you can use a non-reactive dish if you prefer.

Swoosh everything around and marinate in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes.

Remove the swordfish from the marinade and dust with salt and pepper.
