“This is simple-to-make dish with a bright and refreshing taste. This can also be prepared using halibut, and it goes well with a steamed fresh green vegetable. Preparation time does not include marinating time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Grate the peel from the orange using the finest side of a grater, being careful to remove only the outermost layer of skin and not any of the bitter white pith. Grate enough peel to measure 1 teaspoon. Set aside.
  3. Combine orange juice, lemon juice, oil and soy sauce in small bowl. Pour 1/2 of this orange juice mixture into a shallow glass dish. Add 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel to orange juice mixture. Coat fish in mixture; cover and allow to marinate in refrigerator at least 1 hour.
  4. Prepare grill for direct grilling over medium heat.
  5. Place remaining 1/2 of orange juice mixture in small saucepan. Stir in cornstarch and remaining 1/2 teaspoon orange peel. Heat over medium-high 3-5 minutes until sauce thickens, stirring constantly; set aside.
  6. Remove fish from marinade; discard remaining marinade. Lightly sprinkle fish with salt and pepper to taste. Grill fish steaks, on uncovered grill, over medium coals 3-4 minutes per side until fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested with fork. Spoon orange sauce over grilled fish, and garnish with orange segments, if desired. Serve immediately.
  7. **Optional: If you'd like to garnish the steak with orange segments, cut off a slice from the top and bottom of the orange you grated peel from. Slice the remaining peel and pith off orange in wide strips, following curve of orange.
  8. Make "V-shaped" slices into center of orange just inside of membranes to remove orange segments; set aside. Discard orange membranes.
