4 swordfish steaks, 1 to 1-1/2 inches thick

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

6 tablespoons lime juice (about 3 limes)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

 


  1. Wash the swordfish under cold water, pat them thoroughly dry with paper towels, and place them in a shallow ceramic baking pan that will hold them side-by-side, packed tightly together in one layer with their surfaces exposed.
  1. Season with salt and pepper and pour the lime juice over them. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
  1. Remove steaks, pat them dry and rub with oil. Grill in a hot grill pan the usual 10 minutes per inch of thickness, turning mid-way through the cooking.  (Alternatively, the steaks can be grilled out of doors, or broiled, for the same period of time, turning halfway through the cooking.)  Serve  immediately.
