Ripe beefsteak tomatoes add wonderful flavor to this delicious Sicilian sauce. Fresh tuna or halibut can be substituted for the swordfish if you prefer.*
Ingredients

fresh tomato(es)

2 large, beefsteak, cut into chunks (about 1 1/4 lbs)

fresh parsley

1 cup(s), fresh, leaves

olive oil

2 Tbsp, divided

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s)

dried oregano

1 tsp

table salt

½ tsp, divided

black pepper

½ tsp, freshly ground, divided

uncooked swordfish fillet(s)

1¼ pound(s), about 1-inch thick, cut into 24 chunks

yellow pepper(s)

2 small, cut into 12 chunks each

uncooked red onion(s)

1 medium, cut into 6 wedges and each wedge cut in half

uncooked zucchini

1 medium, sliced lengthwise and then cut crosswise 6 times

cooked whole wheat couscous

2 cup(s), kept warm

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill or grill pan.
  2. To make sauce, place tomatoes, parsley, 1 tablespoon of oil, garlic, oregano and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a food processor; pulse until tomato is finely chopped. Set aside.
  3. Thread 2 pieces each of swordfish and yellow pepper, and 1 piece each of onion and zucchini onto each of twelve 8-inch metal skewers. (Note: If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water 30 minutes before use to prevent charring.) Brush kabobs with remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
  4. Grill skewers, turning as needed, until lightly charred and fish is just cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve kabobs over couscous with the sauce on the side. Yields 3 kebabs, 1/2 cup of couscous and about 1/2 cup of sauce per serving.
