Gluten Free Grilled Swordfish with Orange Fennel Salad

Grilled Swordfish with Orange Fennel Salad Recipe

We all know San-J as the people who bring us gluten free, wheat free soy sauces!  But did you know they now also produce GLUTEN FREE GRILLING SAUCES?  That’s right, the people who made it not only possible but easy for us gluten intolerant folks to enjoy sushi, have now made it just as easy to enjoy grilling and barbequing.  And you don’t have to do a lot of hunting to find these grilling sauces, they are right there on your regular grocery store shelves.

It was my pleasure to develop gluten free recipes for San-J as a part of their overall effort to provide convenient and delicious solutions for those on a gluten-free diet.  It was an equally momentous pleasure to become, if only for a couple of weeks, the grill-master of our household!

In our family, my husband is the self-proclaimed grill-master and while the food he “cooks over fire” is always sumptuous, it lacks a certain…hmmm…let’s say…refinement.   Don’t get me wrong, I love big hunks of cooked meat thrown on a platter just as much as the next person –  it makes for a terrific backyard barbeque with paper plates and all but is missing the aesthetic quality I would want for say, a dinner party.

This Grilled Swordfish with Orange Fennel Salad recipe is beautiful and elegant and yet so easy to prepare. I used San-J Orange Sauce as both the marinade for the swordfish and in the dressing for the lovely, bright salad.

Who is the grill-master in your family?

    One of my most favorite summer salads: fennel and orange. Very nice recipe! I also like to add a light shallot vinaigrette to the salad for a more vibrant taste.

    Gorgeous, Carol! I love grilled swordfish! :-) LOL on the lack of refinement and your comment on liking a slab of meat as much as the next person. ;-)
