Today, being the most gorgeous day of the year so far, we went for a nice walk by the water. Subconsciously, it may have just been an excuse to get over to the nearby fish market and pick up some fresh and luscious seafood for our first al fresco lunch of 2012. We chose an assortment of wahoo, just in from Hawaii, as well as swordfish and tuna that still smelled of the sea.
Once home, we cut the fish into large chunks, then quickly marinated it in a mixture of vegetable and sesame oil, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, lime juice, and mirin. We then sliced several pieces of zucchini and onions, gathered a couple of sweet baby peppers and grape tomatoes, and coated them in olive oil and fresh ground salt and pepper.
While the grill was heating up, we threaded all the ingredients on to metal skewers, alternating the different fish pieces between the vegetables. It took only a few minutes on the grill to cook the delicate fish. The succulent grilled seafood was a perfect complement to the outstanding weather, and so it was that we unexpectedly carved out a little piece of heaven today. Happy weekend and a wonderful MDW ahead to you all!
