"I wanted an easy and delicious way to prepare fish with exotic flair. After returning home from a trip to Jamaica with a suitcase full of spices, I went to work, and this is the result." -Karen Harris, Castle Rock, CO
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning (such as Spice Islands)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
4 (6-ounce) swordfish steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
How to Make It
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Add fish, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning the bag occasionally.
Place fish on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

It was very good. Sides are important to balance out the meal. We made sweet potato "plantains" and had chard and they were very good accompaniments. Would lilke to try the marinade on chicken. Think it would be just as good - if not better - without the yogurt (we used Fage) in the marinade.
Simply fabulous entree for family and friends! Everyone loves it and have asked for the recipe. Marinade is splendidly spicy and savory and keeps the swordfish (or any comparable fish) moist. Tweaked the recipe with Greek yogurt which is the yogurt of choice for any dips or marinade that call for it as an ingredient. I have served it with asparagus and basmati rice which complements the swordfish very nicely. Suggestion: Make it and see for your self! :)
A great marinade and a yummy but different way to prepare swordfish. Would probably make the basmati rice recommended with it if I was going to serve to company. I srvd with sweet potato and spinach salad. I think the marinade will be great on chicken.. will try that next.
