Season the swordfish with salt and pepper, to taste, and brush lightly on both sides with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Grill the swordfish 4 minutes on each side for medium to medium-rare.

In a bowl, combine the avocado, onion, peppers, vinegar, lime juice, sambal, cilantro, and remaining olive oil. Season with salt, to taste. Place the swordfish in the center of a plate. Top with the avocado mixture and place the fresh crab on top of the avocado mixture. Serve immediately.
