Asian Swordfish for One (paleo & gluten-free)

I haven’t eaten swordfish in years, but saw this fillet at Trader Joe’s and decided to pick it up for lunch. The marinade is simple and I added a few slices of steamed sweet potatoes with a sprinkling of smoked paprika. It was so tasty and simple.

Asian Swordfish for One

Asian Swordfish for One


  • 1 swordfish fillet (about 1/3 pound)
  • juice of one orange
  • 1 teaspoon coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • lime slice, optional garnish


  1. Whisk orange juice, coconut aminos, sesame oil, garlic powder, ground ginger, and salt in a shallow bowl. Place swordfish in the bowl. Marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator. If the liquid does not cover the fish, turn after 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a grilling pan over medium heat and drizzle with a little sesame oil. Cook swordfish for about 7 minutes per side (cooking times will vary slightly with the thickness of your fillet).
  3. Serve immediately with an optional lime slice.
  4. Enjoy!
