Grilled Honey - Key Lime Glazed Swordfish

Grilled Honey - Key Lime Glazed Swordfish
Serves 4


4 six-eight ounce Swordfish Steaks (order for online shipping here)
Approximately 3 Dried Chili Pasilla
Approximately 2 Dried Arbol Chilies
3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
4 Ounces of Key Lime Juice, Fresh Squeezed (About 13-15 Key Limes)
3 Cloves of Garlic, Whole
1 Ounce of Honey
½ Bunch of Cilantro
2 Ounces of Brown Sugar
Kosher Salt and Black Pepper to taste


1. Cut Stems off the two types of chilies and remove as many seeds as you can. You
can cut the larger Pasilla Chilies in halves or thirds. Boil in small pot of salted
water for ten minutes or until soft. Drain saving the softened chilies and reserve
the water. Take off any other exposed seeds that have appeared.

2. Place chilies, olive oil, key lime juice, garlic, honey, cilantro, brown sugar, and a
bit of kosher salt and cracked black pepper in a food processor and pulse until well
mixed and blended. If the mixture is too clumpy, add a bit of the reserved chili

3. Spread half of the mixture on all sides of the swordfish steaks to where the fish is
well coated but not swimming in the glaze. Place in the refrigerator in a covered
container for 1-3 hours to allow the flavors to intensify. Save the remaining portion
of the glaze for basting while grilling.

4. Brush oil on grill grates to keep from sticking and turn heat to medium. Grill
Sword steaks for about 8 minutes flipping halfway through or whenever grill marks
appear. Baste while cooking with reserved marinade. Cooked medium the internal
temperature should be approximately 135 degrees. Serve with your favorite

summer vegetables or corn. Enjoy!!
