Servings: 4 people


  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins




  • Four 6-8 oz. Swordfish steaks (skinless or skin-on)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • Green onions, sliced (for garnish)
  • Lime wedges, for serving (optional)

Sesame Ginger Glaze

  • ¼ cup Soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar, grated ginger, and minced garlic to create the marinade.
  3. Place the swordfish steaks in a plastic bag, pour the marinade over the swordfish steaks, ensuring they are well coated, release as much air from the bag as possible, and seal tightly. 
  4. Let the swordfish marinate for about 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  5. Remove the swordfish steaks from the fridge and leave at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove steaks from the bag and arrange in a baking dish.
  7. Bake the swordfish in the preheated oven for around 12-15 minutes (depending on thickness), or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
  8. While baking, heat the reserved marinade in a small saucepan over low-medium heat, lightly simmering, until it thickens slightly. About 5-8 minutes. Reserve warm.
  9. Once cooked, remove the swordfish from the oven and let it rest for a couple minutes.
  10. Plate swordfish and top with the thickened marinade sauce. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
  11. Serve the baked sesame ginger glazed swordfish with lime wedges for a fresh squeeze of citrus. Enjoy with your favorite side dish, such as stir-fried veggies, jasmine rice, or grilled Bok choy.
