Swordfish offers many health benefits, especially for people who are following low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets. According to, swordfish has no carbohydrates and contains essential amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids. However, it belongs to a small group of fish that are not recommended for consumption by pregnant or lactating women.

It’s important not to overcook swordfish. However, it is a great fish to marinate, use your favorite rub, or incorporate compound butter (as in the recipe shared here).

Although you can serve swordfish steaks with rice, pasta or baked potato, you will end up with a dinner that is very pale in color. To brighten up the plate, serve the swordfish with corn. Either grill it on the cob with the fish and vegetables or boil it.
