This is a delightful dish and the sauce really steps up the fish with a fruity flair. Try it, you'll like it. I know it came from a magazine, but Lord knows which one, years ago!!

I keep trying to introduce fish into our diet and everyone enjoyed this very much. I made it with the beet, jicama, and carrot salad from Elana's Pantry. It was perfect!

All I could taste was orange, the fish was lost, and I vowed never to cook this again. My husband liked it though, so I can't give it zero stars. But he didn't object when I said I wouldn't do it again, so not so wonderful for him either.

Excellent recipe, the citrus went nicely with the swordfish. I would prefer the sauce to be slightly thicker, however.
