Helpful hints

  • Swordfish, like many types of fish, contains more phosphorus compared to beef or chicken. For a lower phosphorus fish dish you could substitute catfish, codfish or dolphin fish (mahi mahi) instead of swordfish.
  • Protein requirements for those with kidney disease vary based on the stage of CKD. Check with your dietitian for adjustments to recipes or serving size based on your individual protein requirements.

Grilled Mexican Swordfish Fillets

A 3-oz serving would mean that this recipe serves 8, not 6. So should it read that it serves 8? Or that it serves 6 @ 4 oz. each? You are correct--the portion size is 4 ounces. I have updated the analysis to reflect 6 portions, 4 ounces each. Thank you!
