Turkish Char-Grilled Swordfish Shish Kebab Recipe: Izgara Kılıç Kebabı

Serves 4-6



  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 4 fresh or dried bay leaves, crumbled
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 900 gr swordfish, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh parsley

  1. In a bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Place the swordfish in a nonreactive dish and pour over the marinade, turning the fish to coat it thoroughly. Cover the dish and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  2. Prepare a charcoal grill, with the rack set 4-5 inches above the coals.
  3. Arrange the swordfish cubes on 4 skewers. Grill them for about 8 minutes, turning frequently and gently brushing the fish with marinade from the dish. Pull out the swordfish from the skewers, sprinkle with parsley, and serve at once.
