Looking for barbeque inspiration? Here's a healthy and delicious recipe for Sicilian swordfish skewers.

A meal on a stick! These are perfect for the barbecue as the fish holds its form. They could also be grilled or cooked on a griddle. Swordfish is meaty and lean and works brilliantly with this Sicilian inspired marinade.

  1. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes until just soft. Cool. Cut the swordfish into 1 inch cubes.
  2. Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add the courgettes, potatoes and swordfish. Leave to marinate in the fridge if you have time.
  3. Skewer the potatoes, courgettes and swordfish. If using wooden skewers soaking them for 30 mins in water beforehand will stop the fish sticking to them.
  4. Cook on a medium heat barbecue in the middle of the grill or in a hot lightly-oiled frying pan or griddle for 8 minutes, turning the skewers every minute. Spoon over the marinade whilst cooking.
  5. Finish with a grating of the orange zest. and a drizzle of olive oil.
