Grilled Antillean Swordfish #Aruba #Food of the World

Antillean Swordfish- simplelivingeating.com

We are taking a Caribbean vacation on Food of the World this month. Our cooking group has brought us to the lovely island of Aruba.

Aruba was originally settled by Native Americans from Venezuela. It has been mostly under Dutch control since the 1600's.

The cuisine of Aruba has some Dutch influence, but they also use Spanish spices and, of course, what is native and abundant in their area. 

This Antillean Swordfish is rubbed with Pinenton Picante which is a Hot Spanish Paprika. Fish is a large part of the Aruban diet. Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple are also eaten often, so I made them part of this simple summery meal.

  1. Indeed a summery meal. Love grilled fish and veggies but never grilled swordfish. Will try it very soon.

    1. Swordfish cooks up just like tuna on the grill a really firm great fish for outdoor cooking.

  2. I don't think I've ever tried swordfish, but I will definitely try the grilled pineapple and sweet potato.

    1. I highly recommend swordfish. Not fishy at all. Firm white meat. Even frozen and thawed it is delicious on the grill.

  3. I love how fresh the ingredients sound, definitely some island food.

  4. I like how you paired it with the grilled pineapple. Pineapple and fish really complement each other well
