This is one of the easiest seafood entrées you’ll ever make, yet one of the most satisfying and attractive. Sword fish has a meatiness that is nicely balanced by the other components of this salad: spicy arugula, cool mint, sweet oranges, and crunchy pine nuts. It goes without saying that you can easily substitute my ingredient of choice for any white fish you might like: sea-bass, branzino or even some large shrimps, marinated and then grilled will deliver a delicious summer dish. To give the dish an authentic Italian touch and a more dramatic look, use dark- fleshed, slightly tart blood oranges instead of the standard navels (although the latter work too).
