Ingredients

  • One 8-ounce, ¾-inch-thick swordfish steak, skin and bloodline removed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 6 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 Tablespoon very finely diced red onion
  • 1 Tablespoon very finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon very finely diced serrano pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons rice-wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon sambal oelek
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 4 Ounces fresh shelled crabmeat

Directions

Build a charcoal fire under a grill and let the flames die out.

Season the swordfish with salt and pepper, to taste, and brush lightly on both sides with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Grill the swordfish 4 minutes on each side for medium to medium-rare.

In a bowl, combine the avocado, onion, peppers, vinegar, lime juice, sambal, cilantro, and remaining olive oil. Season with salt, to taste. Place the swordfish in the center of a plate. Top with the avocado mixture and place the fresh crab on top of the avocado mixture. Serve immediately.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
