Spicy Barbecued Swordfish

    22 minutes

    I made up this marinade just with what I had on hand and it worked very well. Try it with barramundi.

    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.  -  29 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  08 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really delicious. I grilled the fish over charcoal and the marinade combined with the smokiness was perfect.  -  08 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
