  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 swordfish steak and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons bottled fresh ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 4 (6-ounce) swordfish steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

Combine first 7 ingredients in a small saucepan. Dip each steak into the lime mixture to coat.

Place fish on a broiling pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

While fish cooks, place lime juice mixture over medium heat; cook until reduced by half (about 8 minutes). Serve sauce with fish.
