Swordfish Steak Kebabs
With Quinoa Salad And Lemon & Dill Dressing

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Marinade Time: 4 hours
Grill Time: 15 minutes
I have wanted to share this recipe for a little while now. It was super fresh and delicious. The lemon and dill dressing paired with the swordfish and the salad beautifully, bringing everything together with a tart, yet savory finish.
Ingredients
 Kebabs & Marinade
  • 1 lb. boneless swordfish steaks, at least 1-inch thick and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 to 8 bamboo skewers, soaked for at least 30 minutes
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic turned to paste
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. paprika
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
Lemon & Dill Dressing
  • 5 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • pinch of sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
Quinoa Salad
  • 1 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp. parsley and garlic
  • ½ of a grilled red pepper, chopped
  • ½ of a grilled onion, chopped
  • ½ cup of green beans
Method
  
  1. Whisk the oil and lemon juice together to make an emulsion, then add the garlic, pepper and paprika. Add the swordfish cubes and the green onion and bay leaf.
  2. Toss to coat, and then marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  3. Rinse the quinoa and soak it for 5 minutes in cool water. Drain it and add to a pot with 2 cups of water, the parsley and dehydrated garlic.
  4. Bring the pot to a boil, cover and then lower to a simmer over medium-low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. The quinoa is cooked when the little tail-sprout pops out.
  5. Drain any remaining water, and toss the quinoa with the grilled pepper, onion and green bean.
  6. Preheat the grill to about 400°F
  7. Make the dressing for the swordfish and the salad while the grill is heating. Whisk the olive oil and lemon juice, with the dill and a pinch of sugar. Salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Thread an equal amount of swordfish onto each skewer, reserving the marinade.
  9. Grill the swordfish skewers for 10 to 15 minutes, or until it’s cooked through but not dry, turning frequently.
  10. Baste the swordfish generously with any remaining marinade, up until the last minute or two of grilling.
  11. Serve the swordfish over a bed of quinoa salad, topped with the dressing.

This meal is light and flavorful, best served with warm fresh bread and butter too.

The Last Word
This recipe sounds like something oddly healthy. Oops sorry! Though this recipe is, in fact, healthy, you don’t have to worry about anyone turning their noses up at it. The swordfish itself is very hearty as fish goes, almost chicken-y in texture and flavor, which is good for someone still learning to love seafood. (Yes Still!). You will not be left wanting after a plate full of this meal.Happy Grilling!

I have needed immediate service and repair for the Heat Pump in my Condo in Mississauga three times over the last 8 years. Every time during the heat wave in the summer, and also Ice storm in the winter. Cozy Comfort Plus was referred to me by a family member. Since then Cozy Comfort Plus has always been the place for me to go to for professional and great technical service and repair, even for maintenance on my Gas fire place. As I needed to keep my tenants happy and satisfied. They helped me save thousands of Dollars, by recognizing the problem and replacing the faulty part on a cheap Heat Pump installed by the original builder. Cozy Comfort Plus truly stand to their name. I have referred them to my elderly parents also living in a Condo and they had the same great experience I did. Their technicians are experienced, professionals and extremely customer friendly. In all occasions, they treated it as if their own. Thank you Cozy Comfort Plus

Cozy Comfort Plus Inc. installed a new high efficiency furnace in our house two years ago and it has been operating perfectly ever since. Their service was straight forward, reasonably priced and good value for money. They even walked us through the complicated rebate program that was hard to understand without being involved in the industry.

I would highly recommend them for your next heating and cooling needs.
