When the weather starts to get warmer, one of our favorite things to do is grill! We spend a lot of nights up on our rooftop grilling. Whether with friends or just on our own for a quick weeknight dinner, we love to eat outside and enjoy the view from our roof. One problem with a lot of barbecuing, is that we have been eating way more meat than we usually do. I have been making a conscious effort to add more fish and vegetables options to the grill. These delicious Grilled Swordfish Kebabs are marinated in lemon, garlic, and oregano. Just a few simple, fresh ingredients provide big flavor. They were a big hit, even among the carnivores and kids. I will definitely be adding these into the rotation! This recipe made 8 skewers, but is so easy to adjust up or down.
GRILLING TIP: Always soak wood skewers before hand for about 20 minutes to avoid them burning on grill
Is it too cold outside to grill where you are? This recipe can be made on the stove in a grill pan. Look for an aluminum pan which will cook your food more evenly and is easier to clean. If you choose no stick, be sure that it has a PFOA-free nonstick coating! For me, nothing compares to cook ware from All Clad!
