Soy-Ginger Grilled Swordfish

This is one of my family's favorite recipes and also delicious with tuna or halibut steaks. I like to use concentrated frozen orange juice for a richer flavor. Marcy Hall - Visalia, California.

    I don't cook fish very often, but I'm going to add this dish to my favorites. It's very easy to prepare, and I usually have all the ingredients but the swordfish on hand. It turned out moist and flavorful. I used orange juice concentrate.
