2 Swordfish Steaks ( Cubed )

1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes 
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Ginger Paste 
1/2 tsp. Garlic Paste 

1 head Butter Lettuce ( Washed, patted dry, and leaved seperated from head ) 

In a bowl Whisk all Marinade Ingredients together until emulsified. 

Pour half of marinade in a zip lock bag. Add swordfish to bag. Marinade for 20 minutes. 

Once marinaded, place cubes on Skewers and grill over high heat for a few minutes until cooked.

 Remove Swordfish from grill and place in bowl with remaining marinade. 

Add remaining ingredients in bowl and lightly toss until evenly coated in marinade and well dispersed. Spoon salad into lettuce and wrap tight. 

Best served with some Sake and Swordfighting!
