Rinse fish; pat dry. Cut into 12 (1- to 1 1/4-inch) cubes. Add fish to bag. Press out air; seal. Turn gently to coat fish with marinade. Refrigerate 30 minutes to 1 hour. Soak 12 (6- to 8-inch) wooden skewers in water while fish marinates.

Prepare grill for direct cooking. Spray grid with nonstick cooking spray. Place grid 4 to 6 inches above heat. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place skewers on grid. Cover or tent with foil; grill 3 to 4 minutes over medium-high heat or until grill marks appear on bottom.
