Grilled Swordfish with Pineapple Salsa

For more flavor, lightly oil the grill grate, cook the pineapple slices for several minutes, cut, and add to the salsa.

Makes 4 servings



3 or 4 slices pineapple (canned or fresh), cut into chunks (unless grilling)

1 orange, halved and sectioned

3 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeños

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1 small ripe tomato, cored and diced

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or cilantro

1 tablespoon brown sugar or honey


4 swordfish steaks, 1-inch thick

vegetable oil

salt and pepper, to taste


For salsa:

In a small bowl, combine the salsa ingredients and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (If you grill the pineapple slices, add them later, cut into chunks.)

For swordfish:

Prepare the grill. Rub a little oil onto both sides of the swordfish and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-hot coals for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, turning once. The fish should be opaque throughout when it's done. Serve with the salsa.
