Swordfish Skewers Glazed With Sweet and Sour Sauce

For a sophisticated but simple dinner party recipe, prepare glazed swordfish.

Ingredients:

1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 lb. red or white pearl onions
2 lbs. swordfish, cut into 1-inch cubes
4 Tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
12 fresh bay leaves

Directions:

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

In a small saucepan, bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil.

Lower the heat and reduce the vinegar to about 1/3 cup and set aside.

In a medium saucepan with boiling water, add the pearl onions and cook until soft but still firm, about 4 minutes.

Drain and let stand until cool enough to handle.

Remove the skins, leaving the root intact and the onion whole.

In a large bowl, toss the swordfish cubes, onions and olive oil together.

Season lightly with salt and pepper and toss again.

Thread the fish, onions and bay leaves onto wooden or metal skewers.

Divide the ingredients evenly, alternating them on the skewers.

Grill the fish skewers for about 1 minute on each side, for a total of 4 minutes.

To serve, drizzle with a little of the balsamic reduction.
