This recipe is Italian but with the ingredients used, it could be part of a Greek menu as well. Use the maximum marinating time for the best flavour. From "Williams-Sonoma Italian Favourites".

- Alternate the swordfish cubes with the onion pieces and bay leaves on skewers.
- Arrange the skewers on a broiler pan or on the grill rack.
