Grilled Marlin Steaks with Citrus Marinade

Grilled Marlin Steaks with Citrus Marinade


  • 4 marlin steaks (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Marinade:
    • In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, minced garlic, cumin, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Marinate the Marlin:
    • Place the marlin steaks in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the steaks, making sure they are well-coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, turning the steaks occasionally to ensure even marination.
  3. Preheat the Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grates are clean and well-oiled to prevent sticking.
  4. Grill the Marlin:
    • Remove the marlin steaks from the marinade and let any excess drip off. Place the steaks on the preheated grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. The cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the steaks.
  5. Baste with Marinade:
    • While grilling, you can baste the marlin with some of the reserved marinade for added flavor.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • Once the marlin steaks are cooked, remove them from the grill. Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley if desired. Serve the grilled marlin steaks hot with your favorite side dishes.


  • Marlin is a firm fish, and overcooking can result in a dry texture. Keep an eye on the cooking time to ensure the fish is cooked through but still moist.
  • You can serve the grilled marlin with a side of rice, quinoa, or a refreshing citrus salad for a well-balanced meal.
