Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry. Halve two of the oranges; set aside. Remove 1 Tbsp. zest and squeeze juice (1/2 cup) from remaining oranges. In a small bowl combine the orange zest, orange juice, and sugar.

In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add fish; cook, covered, 7 to 9 minutes or until fish flakes easily, turning fish once while cooking and adding the orange halves, cut sides down, during the last 3 minutes of cooking.
