#4: Grilled Swordfish

A simple, yet tasty recipe for a marinade that we used both on swordfish and chicken. I had to alter the main recipe significantly after I realized half way into making it I was out of most of the ingredients, but it still worked out and made for a light, delicious lunch.

What you need:
2 swordfish steaks, about a pound total
2 large chicken breasts
1 1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup soy sauce
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
1 cup (canned) artichokes, chopped
fresh cracked pepper

What you do:
1. Mix all the ingredients together, reserving a 1/2 cup of the sauce.
2. The chicken can marinade as long as you'd like, but the swordfish no longer than 30 minutes.
3. Grill the swordfish about 10 minutes on the first side. Flip and add more marinade and artichokes on top. Grill another 10 minutes or until flaky.
4. Top with reserved marinade, if desired.
