Any firm-fleshed fish like swordfish or salmon is ideal for kebabs, and the alternating vegetables in this recipe add gorgeous color. Serve the kebabs over a bed of brown or white rice . From the American Diabetes Association. 1 lb fresh swordfish, salmon or other firm-fleshed fish, onion, lemon juice, Teriyaki sauce, black pepper, onion, cherry tomatoes, 1/2 green bell pepper, 1 zucchini, 4 whole mushrooms cvt

Recipe Ingredients for Swordfish or Salmon Kebabs

12 oz (net from 1 lb raw) swordfish (15111), cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tbsp Teriyaki sauce
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 medium onion, cut into wedges
68 g (4 cherry) tomatoes
1/2 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch pieces
72 g (4 medium) mushrooms

Recipe Directions for Swordfish or Salmon Kebabs

  1. Combine the fish, chopped onion, 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, teriyaki sauce (if desired) and pepper in a glass bowl. Mix well, cover and marinate for 2 to 6 hours in the refrigerator.

  2. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 15 minutes. Preheat the broiler and prepare the broiler pan with nonstick pan spray, or prepare a charcoal grill.

  3. On 4 skewers, alternate fish cubes and vegetables. Brush the marinade over the skewered food.

  4. Barbecue or broil about 8 minutes, turning once and basting with marinade, until the fish is opaque and flakes easily.

  5. Discard any remaining marinade.

  6. Variations: salmon or other firm-fleshed fish for the swordfish

  7. Note: Haven't tried so I am not sure of the shrinkage factor from cooking the fish, but reported values are extremely close to those reported by the ADA when 25% shrinkage is assumed.
