  2. Brush onto grilled meats or fish during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Pour remaining glaze over afterwards, or use as bright decoration to your entree.

Good base but try using white wine instead of water. Deglaze before adding juices. I added minced jalapenos and cilantro for a little heat. I also added a pat of butter after reducing for a little creaminess.

too sweet, would recommend trying with citrus juices on top of fish with some lemon pepper; much better; shame to waste fish with this glaze

Delicious, simple, easy. I used this on broiled Tilapia: just brushed it on before broiling til done. I used fresh orange and lime juice and bottled lemon. I also used Stevia sweetener (one packet for 2 servings) and it worked properly. I added a little sprinkle of crushed red pepper to the fish before cooking, which was a nice flavor, too.

This was fabulous! I was doing a "dinner in a hurry" and used fresh OJ, but botteled Lemon & Lime juices. I added a little orange zest to brighten the flavor and a bit of ginger for kick. And I thickened with a little corn starch. My hubby and I both loved it and I will be making this regularly.

Excellent, easy recipe. I tried it on salmon... prepared fish with very light oil and some salt, lightly brushed on glaze before grilling. Cooked as usual, recoat with glaze, and serve as a sauce. I'll break this one out for company I want to impress.

this just didn't do it for us. I was looking for more of an orange glaze and I think the lemon I used was way too big. I used chicken stock in place of the water and a dash of balsamic vinegar. Too lemony, next time leave out the lemon and lime, just use orange maybe.

I was looking for an easy way to give some flavor to my mahi mahi & this recipe worked great! I didn't have a real orange so I used regular orange juice & cut back on the water and sugar a bit, but it still worked. I'm sure with a freshly juiced orange, it would be even better!

Not thick enough to be a glaze. It was runny and I could hardly taste it. I was disappointed.
