Barbecued Marinated Swordfish

It is summer and there is nothing better than a barbecue in the back yard with loads of wine and some good food. Most Australian BBQ however are relegated to just cooking sausages and lamb chops or beef stakes. Whilst this is can be good, I find that there is nothing better than seafood on the BBQ!

This marinade helps to show of the taste of the swordfish, not that it really needs it. Whilst i have the BBQ on, I often just cook up some veggies to go with the fish.

4 Swordfish stakes (about 250grams each)img_0034.jpg
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tablespoons of verjuice (or 3 tablespoons of white wine and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice)
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to season

in a glass bowl or dish (try not to use metal as the taste of metal tends to carry into the fish) mix all of the ingredients except the swordfish to get everything blended together. Then place swordfish steaks into the marinade, and refrigerate for an hour or so.

Preheat your BBQ till it is nice and hot and put a bit of oil on it so things don’t stick.

Barbecue swordfish steaks for about 5 minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook them, you want them to be just cooked not overcooked.

Garnish with some parsley and a lemon wedge.
