Cajun Grilled Swordfish

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: United States, Seafood

 Ingredients List

  • 4 8-oz swordfish steaks;
  • -thawed


1 tb Onion powder
3/4 ts Black pepper
1/4 ts White pepper
1 tb Salt
1 tb Thyme
1/2 ts Annatto powder; (for color)
2 ts Hungarian paprika
1/4 ts Sage
1/4 ts Rosemary
1 ts Ancho pasilla cayenne chile;

Put ingredients in mortor and grind. A spice grinder makes the rub too
fine. Store excess in tightly-sealed jar.

Thaw the swordfish steaks and sprinkle Cajun seasoning generously on both
sides. Place the steaks on a small grill over a glass baking dish so that
the liquid that comes out of the fish does not wash away the seasoning.
Marinate for 1-2 hours at room temperature.

Grill the steaks over hot coals with some mesquite chips for flavor. DO NOT
OVER COOK. Remove the steaks when the meat at the center of the steak has
just turned white, about 140F. Check for doneness with two forks and open
up a section of the steak to see into the center.

Serve with dirty Cajun Rice.
