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. If you are using disposable wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before threading the fish and vegetables to keep them from burning on the grill. Serve with sliced lemon for added flavor.
