Broiled Fish Fillets with Orange Butter Sauce

1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt -- to taste
black pepper -- freshly ground, to taste
1/2 cup diced peeled seeded plum tomatoes
1 1/2 pounds skinless boneless white fish fillets -- (4 fillets)(red snapper -- blackfish, sea bass, or lemon sole)
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Preheat broiler to high.

In a saucepan reduce the orange juice by half over high heat. Add the butter, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Blend well with a wire whisk. Add the tomatoes and set aside.

Brush the fish on both sides with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and arrange the fish in an unheated broiler pan. Broil the fish about 2- to 3-inches from the heat source for 3 to 4 minutes or until the fillets are just cooked through.

Transfer the fillets to a platter, pour the orange sauce over them, and garnish with the chopped chives.
