Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 (1/2-inch-thick) swordfish steaks (5 to 6 ounces each)
  • 4 ounces baby arugula
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
Directions

Light a charcoal grill or preheat a gas or stovetop grill until very hot.

For the sauce, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, red pepper flakes, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.

When the grill is ready, sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes on one side, then turn and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on the other side until almost cooked through. Remove to a flat dish, prick holes in the fish with the tines of a fork, and pour the lemon sauce over the fish while its still hot. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

When ready to serve, place the swordfish on dinner plates or a serving platter, pile the arugula on top, drizzle with the sauce from the fish, and sprinkle with the grated lemon zest. Serve warm.
