It's local Swordfish Season!

The last two weeks of July is about the peak of Swordfish season along the SoCal coast. I am told that John’s fish market (in Dana Point Harbor) usually has their own supply from their own swordfish boat. Forget frozen - fresh local caught grilled swordfish is the delight of summer!

Pack fresh Swordfish in bay leaves, and then simply grill while basting it in olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

    1. Folks, please keep the Los Angeles board on topic by discussing places where swordfish can be purchased to cook at home, or restaurants that serve it in the L.A. region.

      If you'd like to discuss how to cook it, our Home Cooking board is the place for that. The swordfish fishery's sustainability, an evergreen topic, belongs on the Not About Food board. Thanks for keeping the L.A. board on topic.

          It's not the local swordfish, though. I was there yesterday and asked. They only have swordfish from Mexico.

            I contacted Fish King in Glendale...and they have it. Guess I'm heading across town over the weekend!
