Our friend and the president of Western Wake Farmers Market, Juliann Z., submitted this recipe for lemon soy Swordfish.

In Juliann’s words, “The swordfish I bought at the Western Wake Farmers’ Market was AMAZING and super fresh. I thought I’d share a swordfish recipe I’ve loved for many years with you.”


4 large swordfish steaks cut in half

1/3 cup soy

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tsp grated lemon zest

1 garlic clove, crushed

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 cup olive oil


Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.

Pierce fish with a fork and marinate with all ingredients for 1-3 hrs in fridge.

You can either broil the fish or grill. Broil 5-6 minutes on each side. Grill over medium heat for 5-6 minutes per side, brushing occasionally with the extra marinade. Be sure not to overcook.
