  1. Marinate the Steaks: In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Coat the swordfish steaks evenly with the marinade and let them rest for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator to absorb the flavors.

  2. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (204°C) for about 3-5 minutes, preparing it for cooking.

  3. Cook: Place the marinated swordfish steaks in the air fryer basket, ensuring they're not touching. Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the steaks are well-seared on the outside and opaque in the center.

  4. Serve: Garnish the cooked swordfish steaks with lemon slices and fresh parsley. Serve immediately to enjoy the full spectrum of Mediterranean flavors.
