"This wonderful, tangy sauce really compliments the flavor of grilled swordfish steaks. Serve with the cucumber sauce, and the combination of flavors are wonderful. This is my favorite way to have swordfish. You may add some diced hot peppers or spices if you would prefer some heat. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Stir the cucumber, sour cream, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl until combined. Season to taste with salt, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour in the chili sauce, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Season with black pepper, and remove from the heat.
  3. Brush the swordfish steaks on all sides with the 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Cook on the preheated grill until the fish is no longer translucent in the center, and easily flakes with a fork, about 3 minutes per side. Baste with the chili sauce while grilling. Serve the swordfish with lemon slices and the cucumber sauce.

I love this dish. I like spicy food so I used a thai pepper and garlic chili sauce and it was great.

I added garlic powder, but overall great sauce!

Made just as the recipe said and WOW! Super Yum! Thanks for the wonderful and tasty recipe!

3 1/2 stars without the cucumber mix. I enjoyed the cucumber mix, but I didn't find it complemented swordfish.
