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

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.

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.

This was really delicious. I grilled the fish over charcoal and the marinade combined with the smokiness was perfect.
