Swordfish Steaks with Caper Butter Sauce

8-10 Minutes | easy | Serves 2

Swordfish is a very meaty, large fish that can be cut into large steaks, like tuna. This makes it very easy to cook on the BBQ. Here we have topped it with a simple butter-based sauce, with plenty of capers, for pops of acidity.


  • 2 swordfish steaks
  • 1 tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • Small handful parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • A large squeeze of lemon juice
  • Oil, for cooking



Rub the swordfish

Rub the swordfish with a little oil, and season with salt.

Preheat two gas burners

Preheat two gas burners on the Jupiter outback BBQ and set the heat to high. Once hot, place the fish over direct heat and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks.
