Preparation
Build a medium fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium-high. (Alternatively, heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.) Bring oil and garlic to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until garlic is toasted and light golden brown, about 6 minutes (remove from heat if garlic is cooking too quickly). Pour oil through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl and let cool. (The garlic could burn if left in the oil.) Reserve garlic chips for garnish.

Combine peppers, onion, jalapeño, vinegar, and 1/4 cup garlic oil in a large bowl. Add arugula; toss to coat. Season salad with salt and pepper. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Place 3-4 cubes swordfish on each skewer. Brush fish with remaining garlic oil; sprinkle with rosemary and season with salt and pepper.

Grill swordfish until just opaque in the center and lightly browned in spots, about 2 minutes on each of the 4 sides.

Divide salad among plates. Place a skewer atop each. Garnish with garlic chips and lemon quarters for squeezing over.
