Swordfish is one of the best fish to grill and it is extremely tasty as well! This hearty, dense fish will stand up to the rigors of grilling and it loves to take in flavors. As firm and dense as swordfish is, it is surprisingly lean and full of great flavor. This Teriyaki Grilled Swordfish recipe with Pineapple and Onions is perfect for summer grilling!
Making Grilled Swordfish
To make a grilled swordfish an absolute delicacy, we marinated and basted the steaks in Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original. The sauce is fantastic on its own, and that is why we recommend having some at the table as an extra sauce addition. But when that sauce melds with a swordfish steak, then hits the grill and caramelizes in places, you get another deep-flavored umami sensation that you must try to believe.
These flavors would be a hit with several different fish and shellfish on the grill, but we love the way swordfish accepts all the teriyaki flavor and still has enough flavor on its own. If you can’t find swordfish, the best substitute would be mahi-mahi steaks.
Why Grill Pineapple and Onions?
Pineapple is not grilled often enough, in our opinion. The grilling deepens the pineapple flavor and really makes for a special way of eating this delicious fruit. As for the onions, they are a great vegetable to grill, and the char of onion combined with the teriyaki sauce just enhances their flavor.
There are many ways to prepare onions for the grill, but we like this method as it times perfectly with the other items on the grill and the crunchy edges are so full of flavor.
