Swordfish Kebabs recipe

Preparation Time: 3 hours | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Swordfish is marinated for a few hours before being threaded onto skewers and griddled until firm and delicious in this simple yet super effective recipe.


  • 750g swordfish fillets, cubed
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped coriander
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Mix together the oil, coriander, garlic, cumin, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the fish, toss to combine, cover and put into the fridge for 2-3 hours. Drain from the marinade but reserve it.

  2. Thread the fish onto soaked wooden skewers. Griddle for 3-4 minutes on either side, brushing with the reserved marinade. Cook until the fish is flaking and tender.

Adapt the marinade to suit your tastes. You could add lemon and rosemary, chilli powder, or dried chilli flakes. Recipe serves 4-6.
