Ingredients in Grilled Swordfish With Citrus

  • 4 4- to 5-ounces fresh or frozen swordfish or tuna steaks, cut 1 inch thick,
  • ½ cup thinly sliced green onions,
  • 1 clove garlic, minced,
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing,
  • ¼ teaspoon saffron threads,
  • 2 blood oranges or red grapefruits,
  • 1 lemon,
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh mint,
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided,
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided,

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. In a small saucepan cook the green onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes or until onions are soft and garlic is fragrant. Remove saucepan from heat. Crumble saffron threads into oil mixture; stir. Remove from heat and let stand to infuse the saffron.

 

Step 2

Meanwhile, cut a thin slice from one end of each orange and the lemon so fruit will sit level. Working on a cutting board, cut down from the top of the fruit to remove peel and white part of the rind. Working over a bowl to catch juices, remove the sections by cutting into the center of the fruit between one section and the membrane; cut along the other side of each section next to the membrane to free the section. Remove seeds.

 

Step 3

Add saffron oil to bowl with fruit sections and juices. Stir in mint, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

 

Step 4

Lightly brush both sides of swordfish steaks with additional olive oil; sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill fish on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 8 to 12 minutes or just until fish flakes when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through cooking time. Gently stir the fruit-mint mixture to combine; spoon over fish. Serve immediately.
