How to impress someone with a nice meal in a short amount of time? Serve grilled swordfish. It’s impressive on the dinner plate--perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Try grilling it on a stove-top grill pan--these are a nice addition to any kitchen. Look for the ones made from cast iron, they’ll get hotter. Best of all, a stove-top pan will keep you inside rather than running out to the grill while your valentine waits.

Rinse the fish and pat dry. Set aside.
Combine the garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper to taste, olive oil and lemon zest in a small bowl. Pour the marinade into a shallow dish. Dip the filets into the marinade, coating each side thoroughly. Let stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a grill pan or grill over medium-high heat.
Grill the filets just until the ends start to flake, about 3 1/2 minutes a side. Remove the fish from the heat and cover loosely with foil for about 5 minutes.
