Grilled swordfish recipe

This comes from the New York Times website and is now my go to swordfish recipe. Recipe first, then pictures

4 swordfish steaks 6 oz each, hopefully good thickness
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
4 sprigs of rosemary leaves chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
2 teaspoons ground coriander (if you have that easily found in your house, good on ya)
1 teaspoon ground cumin (I omit, SWMBO does not like that spice at all)
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I use more as a substitute for the hated cumin)

Sprinkle fish with S/P & place them in flat bottomed pan. Put marinade ingredient into mixer of choice and combine. Pour marinade over fish and cover pan with plastic wrap & let stand for 10 -20 min. I put it in the fridge just cause, you know, its fish.

Set the Egg for raised direct, I usually do 470-500° & cook until 150ish internal. I also place another sprig of rosemary on top of the fish while cooking to get the oils into the fish. Plate and enjoy!

Stay safe and have a great Thanksgiving socially distanced with masks!

    That looks and sounds awesome.  I may have to do that.  Thanks for posting.

    Interesting that your wife hates cumin; I like it, but only in much smaller amounts than most recipes call for, and I'm the same way with cilantro.
