Swordfish with Orange Sauce

The best part of this recipe is the Orange Sauce. It has a touch of tang to it, to counter the sweet ... yummy! The sauce does well on other things also - we've tried it on other fish, and it's terrific on baked ham.

What you'll need :
Orange Sauce

  • 2/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • Dash hot sauce

  • Swordfish
  • 4 (6 oz.) swordfish steaks
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • Preparation :
    Orange Sauce
    Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

  • Place swordfish steaks on lightly greased grid of broiler pan.
  • Combine lime juice and butter. Brush over steaks.
  • Broil at Lo Broil setting about 4 inches from heat for 10-15 minutes. Turn fish over and continue broiling 10-15 minutes or until done. Brush occasionally with lime-butter mixture.
  • Serve with Orange Sauce.

    This one is so easy, even *I* can make it. Not that the Hubster actually lets me do anything except cut up veggies and such.

    You can vary the tang in the sauce a bit with the amount of horseradish, and potentially by using various hot sauces - although we are simple folks, and just use Tabasco.

    For the record ... I like my spice on the light side - and this sauce fits me to a 'T'. Try it this way first, then moosh it around to suit your fancy!
