  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 swordfish fillets


  • In a shallow dish whisk together lime juice, vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. 
  • Put the swordfish in the bowl to cover and let marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes. 
  • Preheat a grill to high heat (450-500 degrees). Grill the fish for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Actual grilling time will depend on the thickness of your fillet.
