  1. Preparation : Put ingredients in mortar and grind. A spice grinder makes the rub too fine. Store in tightly-sealed jar. Thaw the swordfish steaks and sprinkle Cajun seasoning generously on both sides. Place the steaks on a small grill over a glass baking dish so that the liquid that comes out of the fish does not wash away the seasoning. Marinate for 1-2 hours at room temperature. Grill the steaks over hot coals with some mesquite chips for flavor. DO NOT OVER COOK. Remove the steaks when the meat at the center of the steak has just turned white, about 140F. Check for doneness with two forks and open up a section of the steak to see into the center. Serve with dirty Cajun Rice.
