Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

A recipe so simple I almost didn’t post it, these swordfish skewers with pineapple salsa are the essence of summer. They require very little prep and very little cleanup, but they pack a healthy, flavorful punch that will impress any barbecue guest.

As I mentioned a few posts ago, a project I was working on unexpectedly ended, leaving me with some extra time on my hands. I HATE down time, so not having enough work is never a good thing. I’ve been trying really hard to fill those extra hours with fun things, so on a sunny day last week, I went for a run that ended at the grocery store. (Um, never, ever a good idea.)

I knew I wanted to make something bright and healthy, so I gather ingredients for an easy pineapple salsa: pineapple, red bell pepper, white onion, cilantro, and lime juice. If you are not a lover of spice, this salsa is for you. I simply blended all of the ingredients together to make a smooth salsa that we could use to dress the main dish.

The swordfish kebabs took just a few minutes to assemble and cook. Fresh swordfish and multicolored bell peppers went together very nicely, grilled to perfection, and topped with a generous portion of salsa. Next time I might add chunks of pineapple to the skewers as well; I can’t get enough of it! The best thing about meaty fish like swordfish is that it is super satisfying and filling without feeling heavy. This dinner felt like a spa meal!

The run and the dinner (which I packed up to eat on the boat) cheered me up and helped me to enjoy the slowdown a little. You never know when things will pick up again! (I hope it’s soon).

What deliciously healthy meals have you whipped up lately?

    That salsa sounds amazing. We’ve been doing some quick on-the-grill meals too.

    I have been having lots of similar simple but fresh dinners from the grill. I sadly haven’t had the motivation to blog about them. I’ve got to change that soon. :-)
