  • 1 medium orange, peeled, sectioned, and cut into bite-size

  • ½ cup canned pineapple chunks, undrained

  • ¼ cup diced fresh mango

  • 2 medium jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced

  • 3 tablespoons orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon diced red bell pepper

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro


  • ½ cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon pineapple juice concentrate, thawed

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 ½ pounds swordfish steaks


  1. Make the salsa: Mix orange, pineapple, mango, jalapeños, orange juice, bell pepper, sugar, and cilantro together in a medium bowl until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

  2. Marinate the swordfish: Whisk orange juice, oil, pineapple juice concentrate, and cayenne together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add swordfish and turn to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Remove swordfish from marinade and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.

  5. Grill on the preheated grill until opaque in the center, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve with the salsa.
