Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds swordfish, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • Pinch of oregano
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Tzatziki 

  • 1 1/2 cups low fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1 Tbsp dried dill
  • pinch of dried mint (optional)
  • 1 large cucumber, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Garlic oil (on top of swordfish at the very end)

  • 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp garlic

– On medium low heat, mend the flavors of oil and garlic for about 3-4 minutes. As Simple as that!

Directions

  1. Cut Swordfish into 1 inch chunks, and marinate in dried oregano, lemon juice, and olive oil for 20 min.
  2. While your Swordfish is marinating, start and finish the Yogurt Tzatiki. Combine greek yogurt, garlic, dried mint and dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix for 2 minutes then refrigerate.
  3. Take skewers and depending on the height of the skewer it will make a difference about the amount you put on each one. (we did 4-5 Swordfish pieces on each, and they cooked to perfection).
  4. For tomatoes foil wrap tossed in oil and lightly salted. Place on grill for 10-15 min
  5. Place each skewer on the grill and flip once nicely charred. *Keep in mind fish cooks fast, don’t leave it on the grill for any longer than 6 min.
  6. Lastly, drizzle garlic oil on fish, plate, and serve!

-Add any additional sides to your plate. We heated up  pita chips and made store bought rice pilaf which totally fit with the theme of the meal!

Now… Indulge to your hearts content!
