  1. Make the salsa: In a medium-size bowl, combine oranges, pineapple chunks, mango, minced jalapenos, 3 tablespoons orange juice, diced red bell pepper, sugar, and cilantro. Mix well, and refrigerate covered.
  2. In a non-reactive bowl, mix 1/2 cup orange juice, olive oil, cayenne pepper, and pineapple juice concentrate. Place swordfish steaks in bowl, and turn to coat well. Marinate the swordfish in the mixture for 30 minutes.
  3. Prepare an outside grill with oiled rack set 6 inches from the heat source. On a gas grill, set the heat to medium-high.
  4. Grill the swordfish on each side for a total time of about 12 to 15 minutes, until opaque in the center. Serve the grilled fish with the salsa.

These were outstanding...the fruit salsa was the best part! The swordfish had a slightly fishy taste (which my husband really not so much) so next time I will use another

This was the first time I've had swordfish. It wasn't fishy as expected, but I still didn't like it. This is probably not because of the recipe but more because I don't like fish. My mom's bo...

This dish was so different with a refreshing taste. I served it with jasmine rice and it was delicious! So easy to make too. If you like spicy, you may want to add another jalapeno. And, don...

Easy to prepare with delicious results. I didn't have any mango and used fresh pineapple as suggested by another viewer. As the fish marinates, prepare the salsa the meal is ready in about 45 ...

We enjoyed this recipe. I used marlin instead and it came out well. The fruit salsa is easy to make and tasted great. I added a few extra pepper as we like things spicy. I will make this again.

I love this recipe! The swordfish is perfect! Not fishy at all and not too hot! The taste of the grill is incredible and the addition of the salsa sends you straight to heaven!

Great recipe!!! Will definitely make again. I made a few changes. I didnt have orange juice so used all pineapple juice. I added corn and tomato to the salsa. Also, we live in a condo so no...
