Default Sword Fish?'s

Publix has frozen sword fish filets but there is a big piece and a little piece in the bag which doesn't make for easy grilling or a good presentation (I'll be cooking for four.) So my thinking went to sword fish shish kabobs. I've done chicken kabobs before with good results but never fish. I need recipe ideas and grilling tips please. Also, are we all ok with frozen filets or do I have to mortgage the house and make the trip to Whole Foods and look for fresh?

Kabobs sounds like a bet. Frozen is sometimes better due to the fact that many long liners that fish for swordfish have blast chillers aboard and they are gutted and frozen while at sea. They are really good, I am fortunate that we have them right here just offshore so frozen is not a common thing for me.

I always start with a simple olive oil based marinade and then toss the fillets on the grill. Sword fish is a easy fish to grill, the meat is very firm and won't fall apart. I usually do 5 minutes on one side then flip and 3 minutes on that side. Serve the 5 minute side up with a side of Redneck Caviar and a salad.

I have never done kebabs but I have done steaks marinated in Italian dressing and a little cajun all purpose. Room temp for about 30 min. Grill on high. For kebabs it probably won't take more than 4 to 5 min per side.

Absolutely agree frozen is OK, maybe better, especially for deep water pelagics with 2 exceptions: you caught it yourself (like the ones I hope we get in the Keys next week); or, you know who/when/where it was caught! Kabobs sound great.
