Seared, spiced swordfish with coriander & lime yoghurt


  • Whisk the sake, mirin and sesame oil with the garlic, sambel and soy in a large bowl. Add the fish, toss well and marinate for up to 30 mins.
  • Combine the cumin and 5 spice powder in a small bowl. Set aside. 
  • Then, in another bowl, combine the yoghurt, lime zest and juice, and coriander. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • When ready, sprinkle the fish with the spice mixture and cook on a lightly oiled grill (or BBQ), brushing with the marinade as you do so.
  • Serve the fish on individual plates with a good dollop of the yoghurt on top and your favourite steamed Asian greens and rice on the side.
