Enjoy this month’s kitchen-tested recipe – the Garlic-Chili Swordfish with Grilled Pineapple and Papaya!

½ c. orange juice
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
3 T. honey
1-2 T. garlic-chili sauce*

½ medium pineapple, trimmed and cut into spears

2 6-oz. swordfish fillets
1 T. fresh cilantro leaves, chopped


1. Prepare the sauce by whisking the orange juice, olive oil, honey, garlic-chili sauce, garlic powder, and lime juice together in a medium bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Divide the sauce into two small bowls and set aside.

4. Turn the fish and fruit and cook for another 4-5 minutes, or just until the swordfish is cooked through. Do not overcook. Continue brushing the fillets and fruit with the marinade throughout the cook time.

5. Remove from heat and divide the swordfish and grilled fruit between individual serving plates. Garnish with the fresh cilantro right before serving and offer the remaining chili-garlic sauce on the side. Enjoy!
