After an unusually long week these kabobs were the perfect way to to cap off a Saturday night. Grilled to perfection with a sizzling sauce left me wanting for nothing.
Serve with the sauce and white rice if it's a training day!
Recipe & Ingredients
1 1/4 pounds fresh swordfish steaks
1 red bell pepper, cut into large chunks
1/2 sweet, Vidalia or purple onion cut into small chunks
1 zucchini, sliced
8 mushrooms, whole
fresh pineapple, cored and cut into chunks
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 lemon, squeezed
1/2 lime, squeezed
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
You will need 4 skewers. Cut the swordfish into 16 equal sized pieces and season with the sea salt and pepper; cut up the zucchini, onions and pineapple into chunks of equal portions for each skewer.
Thread onto the skewers, top each one with about 1 tablespoon of the sauce and grill 4-5 minutes per side, covered. Remove from heat and serve on or off the skewer with the sauce
Heat the olive oil over low medium heat, add the chopped garlic and pepper and saute for 2-3 minutes or until slightly softened. Do not allow the garlic to brown. Add the fresh ginger and saute for 1-2 minutes more. Pour in the juices, mustard, teriyaki and sriracha sauces and bring to a boil. Boil gently until reduced by about one third.
Let cool slightly. Use 1/4 cup of the mixture to drizzle over the skewers before grilling and the remaining for dipping after they cooked.
Serves 2 if you're leaning out, double the recipe if you're not--enjoy!
