Grilled Swordfish Kebabs in Spice Brine

13 Aug

Swordfish has never impressed me, but I absolutely  love this recipe. I have made it now twice in the past week and everyone who has tasted it has given it thumbs up. I have to give serious apology to swordfish.                                                                               I have been in California and have had the opportunity to shop at wonderful farmers market and at fishmonger. Everything is very fresh and wonderful. I am not even going to mention the wonderful wine I have had a chance to try. Cheers to swordfish.

  • 2 fresh swordfish steaks cut in to 1″ cubes
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 1 tbs coriander
  • t tsp black peppercorn
  • 1 1/2  tbs kosher salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbs honey
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 2 tbs mint leaves chopped

Mix all the spices together. Place the swordfish cubes in a ziplock bag and pour the spice mix in the bag. Marinate the fish in the fridge 30-60 minutes turning the bag at least one time. Heat a grill for medium high heat. Place the fish on kebabs leaving space between pieces. Grill 4-6 minutes total turning once. I have served this over salads and with grilled vegetables. Both worked well.
