Lemon, olive oil, and thyme add a zesty Mediterranean flair to this easy swordfish recipe. Fresh-grilled veggie skewers make for a delicious one-dish meal that comes together in only 30 minutes with an even easier cleanup. Be sure not to marinate the fish for longer than 30 minutes so that the fish does not become mushy.

Fresh thyme

1½ tbs, finely chopped

Olive oil

3 tsp

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Fresh lemon rind

2 tsp, finely grated

Lemon juice

cup(s), (80ml)

1 medium, cut into 2.5 cm pieces

Lemon(s)

1 medium, cut into wedges to serve

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Combine thyme, olive oil, garlic, lemon rind and lemon juice in a shallow dish. Transfer half the thyme mixture to a small bowl and set aside. Add fish to thyme mixture in dish and turn to coat. Cover and place in fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Thread fish, tomatoes, zucchini, onion and capsicum alternately onto 4 metal or wooden skewers (see tip).

Soak wooden skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before using to stop them burning during cooking.
