  1. Place the swordfish, pineapple chunks, red onion, and red bell pepper in a large glass or other non-reactive bowl.

  2. Add the olive oil, lime zest, fresh cilantro, and garlic powder and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Gently toss to combine. Set aside to marinate for 15-20 minutes, stirring once or twice during that time.
