Chili-Lime Swordfish

Swordfish goes down especially well with a light, mineral or fruit biased white wine, and this chili-lime recipe will supply the kick you need to enjoy both. It’s easy to make, less than an hour from prep to plate, and most of that is waiting for the marinade to work its magic. That should be just about enough time to cool down the chardonnay. Swordfish is thick, meaty and tasty, and this recipe makes the most of one of the ocean’s premier offerings. Cut up some fresh fruit — grapes, strawberries, kiwi, lime or mandarine orange — to add some fruity notes that will compliment your wine. 

2 medium sized swordfish fillets


2 tbsp soy sauce

Juice of 1 lime

2 tsp minced ginger

2 tsp mince garlic



1/2 can coconut milk

4 tbsp lime juice

2 Serrano chilies, cut into small chunks

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp lime zest

Handful of cilantro

Salt and pepper to taste


Line a large baking sheet with foil and grease.

Lay salmon on foil and season with salt and pepper on both sides to taste.

Slip lime slices underneath the salmon.

Stir together butter, lime juice, honey, and garlic.

Pour mixture over salmon.

Fold sides of foil up over the salmon (don’t worry if it doesn’t cover the salmon completely).

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Switch oven to broil and cook another 5 minutes.

Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top and serve.
