Wild Blue Marlin fillets with Lime Butter Sauce

Wild Blue Marlin is a very hardy, thick white fish, very much like swordfish in texture and flavor. Because of its thickness, it is great for grilling, though we've chosen to bake this recipe. The lime butter brings out the flavor.

Wild Blue Marlin Filets with Lime Butter Sauce


  • 2 large Wild Blue Marlin fillets (about 10-12 ounces each, 1 inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 ounces sweet butter, softened
  • chili pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine mustard and fennel seeds. Mix well and rub over Marlin fillets.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Brush Marlin with olive oil and bake 30 minutes, or until Marlin is cooked through and white and flaky. Be sure to flip the fish about halfway through the cooking process to cook evenly.
  • While fish is baking, place lime juice and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Whisk until creamy, then season with chili pepper.
  • Serve over Marlin fillets.

NOTE: We served our Marlin fillets over a bed of sautéed cabbage and asparagus seasoned with chili powder. The combination is not only delicious, but makes for a colorful presentation. Adjust heat and cooking times according to the thickness of your Marlin fillets.
