  • 2 orange
  • 3/4 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantroleaves
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 chopped green onion, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 1/2 pounds swordfish steak, 1-inch thick (about 4 steaks)


  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion: Serve with hot cooked brown rice tossed with chopped green onion and smashed peas with cilantro. For dessert serve yogurt and fresh berry parfaits.
  • Step 1

    Grate 1 teaspoon zest and squeeze 2 tablespoons juice from 1 orange.  Peel and coarsely chop the remaining orange to make 1 cup.

  • Step 2

    Stir the picante sauce, orange zest, orange juice and cilantro in a medium bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup picante sauce mixture to baste the fish.  Stir the chopped orange, tomato and onions in the bowl with the remaining picante sauce mixture.  Cover and refrigerate.

  • Step 3

    Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Grill the fish for 10 minutes or until cooked through, turning the fish over once halfway through the grilling time and brushing often with the reserved picante sauce mixture. Discard the remaining reserved picante sauce mixture.

  • Step 4

    Serve the fish with the orange mixture.
