Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 swordfish fillet (5 oz.), about 1" thick, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 tomato, seeded and cut into wedges
  • ½ green pepper, cut into 1" squares
  • ¼ sweet onion, cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 skewers, soaked in water (8")

Directions

  • Combine the olive oil, lime juice, Dijon, paprika, salt and pepper in a small nonmetal bowl, and add the swordfish, stirring once or twice to coat evenly. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.
  • Oil broiler rack and place it about 4 inches from the heat source. Preheat broiler to medium-high.
  • Remove the fish from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Thread the vegetables and fish cubes onto the skewer, alternating the fish cubes with the vegetables. Brush the kebab with the reserved marinade.
