Fisherman Kabobs

Chef Amy Riolo is back in the kitchen preparing a meal from her cookbook, The Italian Diabetes Cookbook.

Amy prepares fisherman kabobs with swordfish, explaining that any firm and structured fish can be substituted in this recipe. Make sure you don’t overcook your fish on the kabob and you will know it is done when it turns an opaque color. She also shows you how to make your own pesto to pair with your fish.
