Recipe Ingredients for Souvlaki Swordfish Steaks

2 lbs swordfish steaks, cleaned and cubed into even small pieces
1 large red onion, cut into quarters and then quarters again
20 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
3/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon of dried chili flakes
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Recipe Directions for Souvlaki Swordfish Steaks

  1. Prepare the souvlaki by marinating the swordfish in HALF of the marinade for about 45 minutes in the fridge (keep the rest of the marinade aside to drizzle over once they are cooked)

  2. Remove the fish pieces from the fridge and begin threading the skewers with a combination of swordfish, onion pieces and tomatoes. Repeat until you have a skewer with a uniform pattern-it doesn?t have to be perfect though!

  3. Cook the souvlaki on a hot pre oiled barbecue or grill for approximately 5-6 minutes, turning them over halfway through.

  4. Once cooked drizzle the remainder of the marinade over the souvlaki and top with extra Greek oregano if preferred and lemon wedges.

  5. Serve with a simple salad and your favorite Middle Eastern bread or Greek pita.
