"Here's a swordfish marinade made with items that I had on hand, and it has a nice zing to it as well!"

We made excellent swordfish with this. My only hesitation in giving it four rather than five stars is that I would add more of the cajun seasoning and mustard next time -- maybe increase by 50% at least. The lemon flavor was much stronger.
I don't like to give out bad reviews and even though we like everything in this recipe, neither my husband nor I liked the end result on this. I followed the recipe to a T and it was too much lemon and the flavor was just not good. The lemon really overpowered everything. I felt like I had wasted Swordfish (which is a NO NO). I was VERY disappointed to say the least. We will not be having this again.
This was really delicious. I grilled the fish over charcoal and the marinade combined with the smokiness was perfect.
Delicious! I went with the other reviews and used less lemon and more mustard and it turned out great.
Was a good introduction to swordfish, although it was hard to detect the marinade. I might choose to let the steaks marinade for longer next time. They also needed more time on the grill - thank you for letting me try.
I am not a fish eater at all. Made this (substituting something called louisiana blackened fish seasoning for the cajun seasoning ... since it's all i had on hand). Used on tuna steaks instead of swordfish, and I liked it ... hubby and son loved it.
Really enjoyed this recipe... I took another person's suggestion and marinated the steaks for 24 hours--- awesome!!
This was excellent though I agree with the last review...I would suggest marinating all day or over night as well even. I marinated 3 hours and still would have like a bolder flavor...but the flavor that was there was superb!! I used mahi mahi in place since the store didnt have the swordfish :( Great dish though and can't wait to try again marinated for longer!
