Citrus Swordfish

(Gluten-free)

Ingredients

  • 2 swordfish steaks, about 3/4 to 1 inch thick (about 6 ounces each)

  • Lemon, orange, and lime zest, grated (approximately 2 tablespoons total; to get zest, finely grate peel of whole fruit, being careful not to include bitter white skin)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions

Preheat broiler. Mix zest with herbs and oil. Pat zest mixture on both sides of steaks and place in flat pan. Broil fish approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Turn once and broil 3 to 4 minutes or until done. Pour pan juices over swordfish and serve right away, garnished with slices of orange, lemon, and lime.
