"Here's a swordfish marinade made with items that I had on hand, and it has a nice zing to it as well!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
