Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 (6-ounce) swordfish or similar fish steaks, such as mako, or tuna, cut 1-inch thick
