How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, toss the swordfish with the garlic, ginger, lemongrass, 1/4 cup of the vegetable oil and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onions and cook over moderate heat until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add the fennel and cook until lightly browned and crisp-tender, about 2 minutes longer.

Step 3    

Remove the swordfish from the marinade, scraping off the solids. Thread the swordfish, onions, fennel, zucchini and tomatoes onto eight 10-inch skewers and season the kebabs with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Grill the kebabs over high heat, turning, until lightly charred and the fish is nearly cooked through, about 5 minutes. Spread the Summer Herb Pesto on a large platter and arrange the kebabs on top. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar, garnish with the orange zest and serve.

Make Ahead

The skewers can be assembled and refrigerated for up to 2 hours.
