Ingredients

Bamboo or metal skewers
1
lb. swordfish steak, cut into bite-sized (1 1/2 to 2-inch) pieces
1/2
cup purchased sweet-and-sour sauce
2
medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1
medium red bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
15
to 20 cherry tomatoes
Additional sweet-and-sour sauce, if desired

  • 1 If using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat gas or charcoal grill. Place swordfish pieces in large bowl. Add 1/2 cup sweet-and-sour sauce; turn fish to coat all sides. Add zucchini, bell pepper and tomatoes; stir gently to coat.
  • 3 Thread fish, zucchini, bell pepper and tomatoes evenly onto skewers.
  • 4 When grill is heated, place kabobs on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork, turning once. Serve kabobs with additional sweet-and-sour sauce.

Expert Tips

Halibut, tuna or flounder can be used instead of the swordfish.

If you have too many vegetables to fit on the skewers with the fish, just thread them onto several extra skewers.

These kabobs may be served on a bed of rice - white, brown or wild rice or a combination. Serve extra sweet-and-sour sauce on the side.

To broil kabobs, place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling time as a guide, turning once.
